vmware-tools-core-XX.el6.x86_64 -> need dependency by example ( vmware-tools-foundation >= 0:X.X.X vmware-tools-libraries-nox = 0:X.X.XX vmware-tools-guestlib = 0:X.X.XX )

I would choose all vmware-tools-* package in this directory and better choose the last repository vmware for vmware_esx55 and install it (the dependancy will be find by yum with a yum localinstall if rpm or by yum install vmware-tools-* if you have add the new depot).

Best regards
