do you try to upgrade to Vmware Workstation 7.1.5

...I try now.

From log I think that problem is program GCC in linx 11.10, version 4.6

With this version Vmware Workstation isn't able to compile module for kernel linux 3.0

Stay tune.

try to read this post, very interesting:

After spending some time browsing for help, I found


Weltall's blog mentions that the patches made available at the above location work also for

linux 3.0.0-rc1.

I downloaded and applied them to my linux 3.0.0-1-686-pae system and there they work fine

too. The modules load and install fine, so the problem has been solved.

The patch is at http://weltall.heliohost.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/vmware2.6.39patchv3.tar.bz2

and even though it says 2.6.39 it works fine for 3.0.0 as well, AFAICS.

After downloading and extracting the archive you get two files: vmware2.6.39fixedv3.patch and

patch-modules_2.6.39.sh. Simply run ./patch-modules_2.6.39.sh to apply the patches and install the modules.
