Just run vmware as root (i.e.: `sudo vmware'); it will build the necessary modules. After that, close it and run it as your normal user.

Re: [solved] vmware workstation 6.5.1 help to install

thank you it was really simple just move old binary

sudo mv /usr/lib/vmware/modules/binary /usr/lib/vmware/modules/binary.old

and rebuild modules ^^

sudo vmware-modconfig –console –install-all

This helped me too, but I ended up using double hyphens on the modconfig arguments. Thus:

$ vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

Thanks! Big help.
