          Here is what i have done so far!

           

          dnf install elfutils-libelf-devel

          cp -r /usr/lib/vmware-installer/2.1.0/lib/lib/libexpat.so.0 /usr/lib/vmware/lib
          cd /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libz.so.1
          mv -i libz.so.1 libz.so.1.old
          ln -s /usr/lib64/libz.so.1 .

          mkdir -p /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc

          tar -xvf /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vmmon.tar --directory /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source

          tar -xvf /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vmnet.tar --directory /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source

          cd /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vmmon-only ; make

          cd /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vmnet-only ; make

          mkdir -p /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc

           

          I was able to power up my VM!
