Re: Running VMWare Player with 2.6.15 kernel
It's yet late for me, so my mind is not in optimal conditions :-D...
i remember I've found & tried the vmware-any-any-update, and it solved my VMplayer/VMserver related problems .
Hope it helps you...

Has anyone managed to get VMWare Player (not the full Workstation)
running on top of a 2.6.15 kernel?
I've just compiled the Player, including the modules, from the tarball
distribution (accepting all the defaults except for installing to
/usr/local) and everything seems to go well until the services are
started when I get the following:
Starting VMware services:
Virtual machine monitor failed
Virtual ethernet failed
Bridged networking on /dev/vmnet0 done
Host-only networking on /dev/vmnet1 (background) done
Host-only networking on /dev/vmnet8 (background) done
NAT service on /dev/vmnet8 done
The configuration of VMware Player 1.0.1 build-19317 for Linux for this
running kernel completed successfully.
You can now run VMware Player by invoking the following command:
when I run vmplayer I get:
vmware is installed, but it has not been (correctly) configured
for this system. To (re-)configure it, invoke the following command:
Basically two of the modules will not load.
Any ideas because I don't know where to go fomr here? I'm compiling
using the same kernel headers from the running kernel and the same
version of gcc as was used for the running kernel so it's not that.
