what exactly are you attempting to do?  install vmware tools?
what is the output of rpm -qa | grep kernel ?
Nathan HawkinsTechnical Lead - Network SecurityCommented:
You didnt really give much detail, but what you did give illustrates we are dealing with a Linux installation of VMWare. So which linux distro is VMWare installed to and what version of VMWare are you having problems with?

All vmware tools are includesd in open-vm-tools* packages in Fedora 19+ and Rhel7
If you read vmware support statement - this is prefered and only supported way over installing crumbles form iso or yum repos.

next time, you need to be more specific and provide additional details
just saying you need for vmware made us think vmware tools for a fedora guest though you never mentioned you are running vmware workstation.  i could have helped you with that since i installed workstation 11.1 on fedora 21 before.
as a side note, i did experience strange issues with virtual machines on fedora 21; rebuilt to red hat 7 with workstation 11.1 and virtual machines were more stable
vmware scripts expect that you have kernel headers matching running kernel with purpose to activate its modules on the fly.
