Hi all,

I'm using Kubuntu 11.04 and after installing the workstation 8 version, a message appears saying that "...several modules must be compiled...", then I click install.

An error occurs:

Unable to build kernel module.

See log file /tmp/vmware-root/modconfig-21640.log for details.What is wrong?

Thanks

Install the build-essential & linux-headers-generic packages

I've searched but didn't see where to mark...

By the way, I had a problem with the VMWare Workstation 8, because my hardware doesn't supports. So now I've installed the VMPlayer 3.1, and have the same problem.

This is the log file:
