i'm just getting into this very cool planet ccrma stuff. i've yum
installed planetccrma-core-edge, which installed

since i have an nvidia card, i also installed
kernel-devel-2.6.16-1.2080.13.rrt.rhfc4.ccrma. recompiling and
installing the nvidia drivers after that went fine.

so then i moved onto the next thing i have to rebuild after every
kernel install, and that's vmware.

whenever i run vmware-config.pl, i get this:
make[1]: Entering directory

Unable to make a vmmon module that can be loaded in the running kernel:
insmod: error inserting '/tmp/vmware-config10/vmmon.o': -1 Unknown
symbol in module

checking /var/log/messages, i see this:

(there are several of the "version magic" lines, complaining about
different kernel versions not matching the rrt kernel vesion)
Jun  1 22:16:50 home kernel: No module found in object

i'm doing all this on fc4 i686.

any ideas on this?
