I'm confused. What OS is the host? What OS is the guest?

It almost sounds like you are trying to install the tools in the

After copying the Vmware tools to the to the Virtual Machine you

The host is running opensuse 11.1 x86_64 since that's the latest
I have Vmware Workstation, and I have two licenses, one for a windows 7
host and one for my Linux host. (11.4)
I have a Opensuse 11.4 guest in both machines, and had no trouble
installing tools via the recommended
Vmware installation method which compiles several components. Other
than having the headers and a competent
compile environment installed in the Virtual Machines, I had no
particular problem getting this to run.
I've retried a compile of the VMware tools ditributed with the VMware Server
2.0.1 but to no avail.
I have these packages installed in the 11.4 guest:

None of the pre-built vmmemctl modules for VMware Tools is suitable for your
running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmemctl module
for your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)?
Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.
Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "4.5.1", while you are trying to use
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.5". This configuration is not recommended and VMware
Tools may crash if you'll continue. Please try to use exactly same compiler as
one used for building your kernel. Do you want to go with compiler
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.5" anyway? [no] y
What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
The directory of kernel headers (version @@VMWARE@@ UTS_RELEASE) does not match
your running kernel (version 22.214.171.124-0.5-default). Even if the module were to
compile successfully, it would not load into the running kernel.
