     Hello,
          I went to the site to download the patch.  Upon installing the patch, it brought me to the installation of VMware.  This is the output of the installation.  What can I do to correct this situation?

VMware modules in "/usr/lib/vmware/modules/source" has been updated.

Before running VMware for the first time after update, you need to configure it
for your running kernel by invoking the following command:
"/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl". Do you want this script to invoke the command for
you now? [yes] yes

Making sure services for VMware Workstation are stopped.

Stopping VMware services:
   Virtual machine monitor                                 [  OK  ]

Configuring fallback GTK+ 2.4 libraries.

In which directory do you want to install the mime type icons?
[/usr/share/icons] /usr/share/icons

What directory contains your desktop menu entry files? These files have a
.desktop file extension. [/usr/share/applications] /usr/share/applications

In which directory do you want to install the application's icon?
[/usr/share/pixmaps] /usr/share/pixmaps

Trying to find a suitable vmmon module for your running kernel.

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

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

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include] /usr/src/linux/include

The path "/usr/src/linux/include" is not an existing directory.

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]
