Description of problem:

After I installed FC5Test3 on my VMware 5.5.0 build-18463, I ran
vmware-config-tools.pl to configure vmware tools. But it gaves the following
error messages:

[root@localhost ~]# vmware-config-tools.pl

Stopping VMware Tools services in the virtual machine:
   Guest operating system daemon:                          [  OK  ]
Trying to find a suitable vmhgfs module for your running kernel.

None of the pre-built vmhgfs modules for VMware Tools is suitable for your
running kernel.  Do you want this program to try to build the vmhgfs module for
your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes]

Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

In file included from <stdin>:2:
/lib/modules/2.6.15-1.1955_FC5/build/include/asm/page.h:71:23: error:
mach_page.h: No such file or directory
What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]

Then the process failed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
