I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 2.6.32-10-generic today. After a succesful update that fixed a couple of nagging problems on my laptop (nice work guys) I started VMware Workstation. I got the expected "Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled..."

The compile errors out and points to the setup log. I have searched and found several very similar posts all relating to build-essential or kernel-headers not being installed. I have verified both are installed and up to date. Any suggestions?

Here's the important part of the log:

Really? Popular app and a new distro of Ubuntu and nobody has anything for compile problems?

I have the same problem in the 2.6.32 kernel too. I have no idea what's going on :-(
