Hi. my vmware-workstations 11 has been working perfectly, but after update my system from kernel 4.0.4-301.fc22.x86_64 to 4.0.6-300.fc22.x86_64, the vmware show me a dialog windows when say the kernel headers were not found.

I've trying to patch and re-install the modules but when i run "# vmware-modconfig --console --install-all" returns this message "Failed to setup build environment."

Reboot to the kernel that vmware did work. You need to update your vmware modules so it works with the new kernel

You need reboot and use previous kernel, since vmware is not a Fedora part or in Fedora repositories they have delay to update kernel modules to new versions the kernel. Because of that when Fedora update to new kernel version your vmware may not work.
