If anyone is actually running VMware Player 4 on a fully updated PP, including the current kernel, I sure would like to know how you did it. Been playing with it for 40 minutes and get a clue as to why it won't work. It won't even install.
I have tried patching, fixing the sources to ignore kernel version, manually building kernel module, etc. The thing not only won't work but it outputs no decent info to logs as to why it fails.
Online tutorials and workarounds are targeted at Oneiric and previous kernel.
