Issues running VMware workstation 6.0

Postby Ph0eniX » Sat Feb 02, 2008 19:50

WMWae workstation 6.0 doesn't want to run after upgrading the kernel to the latest Sabayon release. It gives me:

"VMware Workstation Error:
VMware Workstation is installed, but it has not been (correctly) configured for your running kernel. To (re-)configure it, your system administrator must find and run "vmware-config.pl". For more information, please see the VMware Workstation documentation."

It looks like it recompiles the VMW modules ok but then when I try starting "/etc/init.d/vmware" some components say "failed". Is anyone else running VMware 6.0 with the latest kernel?

Thanks! :D

do you miss to replace vmblock,tar, vmnet.tar and vmmon.tar from /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source with patch from vmware-any-any-update ??
I'm running vmware 6 too for my vista in kernel 26.22 and it work smoothly :mrgreen:
i think there is no issues running vmware on this kernel.....
