I have tried uninstalling it and reinstalling using the tar.gz version of it, and running the vmware-install.pl file, it all installed fine (again) but now during configuration, it comes up with this.
Is there a way of building the vmmon module in another fashion? Or can I fix this error, i've had more luck with this installation method, its just the configuration thats the problem now. Is there a incompatibility between VMWare Workstation 6 and Ubuntu 8.04?
