VMware fails during VMware Kernel Module Update!

VMware error log

Upon trying to run VMware, it brings up the VMware Kernel Module Updater.  When I click Install, it properly stops VMWare Service.  Then, it properly compiles the Virtual Machine Monitor, the Virtual Machine Communication Interface, and the VMCI Sockets.  It fails to compile both the Virtual Network Device and the VMware Blocking Filesystem.  After that, it fails to start the VMware services.

The log is posted above.

Please help!  I must get VMware running within the day!

Re: VMware fails during VMware Kernel Module Update!

Looking at the Wiki, I don't see that I've done anything wrong.  One problem may be that I have VMware Workstation v8.

Re: VMware fails during VMware Kernel Module Update!

Doesn't vmware always have problems with the latest kernel i.e. the one Arch ships? That's how I remember it, anyway, from those dark days when I was forced to use it - I had to go looking for patches every time.

Re: VMware fails during VMware Kernel Module Update!

Perhaps I will try to cheat by using Virtualbox.

Good idea, or try qemu/kvm.

Re: VMware fails during VMware Kernel Module Update!

I have vmware workstation 8.04 running fine on 64bit system with kernel 3.6.11 and kernel 3.0.57-lts, was this working before an update or are you installing from scratch?

Re: VMware fails during VMware Kernel Module Update!

This problem went unsolved.  I decided to use Virtualbox instead.  This was effortless and it just works.
