When I first time around installed VMware, it Installed successfully and when I ran the program it got me to where you have a dialog box to select the kernel module, now when I install it the program doesn't get past "Sorry - KDE su": enter image description here

The error is:

Cannot execute command ' ''\''/usr/bin/vmware-modconfig'\'' --icon='\''vmware-workstation'\'' --appname='\''VMware'\'' --gcc='\''/usr/lib64/ccache/gcc'\'' --headers='\''/lib/modules/3.13.6-200.fc20.x86_64/build/include'\'' --gcc-ignore-minor ''.

I tried to take the extra symbols out and run the command in the Terminal but it didn't build.

Here is the kernel:

~]$ uname -r

Here is kernel-devel

Installed Packages
kernel-devel.x86_64                   3.13.6-200.fc20                   @updates

enter image description here

Anyone got any idea what to do, is there a patch that I am suppose to install?
