    This worked for me upgrading to vmware 8.04 on Ubuntu 12.04.

    After applying the patch, you can type:

    sudo vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

    at the command line to complete the upgrade process.

    This was also a successful fix for me.
    Ubuntu 12.04 with Vmware Workstation 8.0.4.7xxxxx
    Note I did NOT have to uninstall VmWS prior or after patching.
    Thanks all for posting!

    I did it manually following the below process:


    Find the source code
    On my system it is at /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source

    Untar source modules
    tar xvf vmnet.tar
    This creates a subfolder containing the source files (in this case, vmnet-only).

    Apply the patch
    Assuming the patch file is ~/Downloads/vmware3.2.0.patch
    patch -p1 < ~/Downloads/vmware3.2.0.patch

    Re-Tar the source folder
    tar cvf vmnet.tar vmnet-only/

    Rerun the module compilation process and hope the patches fix the problem.

    Thanks to all,
    Chaitanya.

    Thanks! you saved my day!
