The wiki has not been updated for the 2.6.36 kernel. You need to google.

We don't lock threads just because they're done (maybe we should though). Just edit your first post and mark it [solved].

If you've solved this problem why not add a paragraph to the Wiki?

Re: [Solved] Vmware doesn't work with kernel 2.6.36

thanks for posting this, I ran the referenced script yet for some reason still continue to have one issue with the 'Virtual ethernet' module ... I did update the Vmware:Talk page, but not the front page yet, as I still havingtrouble with Virtual ethernet. anyone else running into a similar issue and have a potential fix for kernel 2.6.36?

Re: [Solved] Vmware doesn't work with kernel 2.6.36

For me (Arch x64), the script fixed the problem.

   VMware USB Arbitrator                                               done

   Virtual machine communication interface                             done
   VM communication interface socket family                            done
   Blocking file system                                                done
   Virtual ethernet                                                    done
   Shared Memory Available                                             done

Re: [Solved] Vmware doesn't work with kernel 2.6.36

# vmware-installer --uninstall-component=vmware-workstation

# wget http://communities.vmware.com/servlet/JiveServlet/download/1650169-45603/vmmon_fix_2.6.36.sh

# sh ./vmmon_fix_2.6.36.sh

Re: [Solved] Vmware doesn't work with kernel 2.6.36

Hi,

VMware has been Hell for me to install, even with the script above, i always get unable to install vmmon!!

Fresh install with kernel 2.6.36.2.1.... Cant get pass this....i have followed the wiki step by step but the result is always unable to install vmmon...

Update: Even if i launch vmware by itself always get unable to build kernel module..and yes i have the headers and gcc ofcourse.
