    Question VMware Kernel Module Updater

    VMware Workstation 9 doesn't seem to react very well to the latest kernel update.



    Has anyone else come across this?

    I had the same problem today. Solved by updating VMware player from 5.0.1 to 5.0.2

    I had the same problem, and here's how I fixed it. Create a script with the following: http://paste.kde.org/677882/raw/ and run it. VMware should work fine after that. (This script was obtained from here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2107900.)
