I've just spent a good hour wrestling with VMWare 6.0 in my new Ubuntu 7.10 installation -- there would seem to be an issue with the vmware-any-any-update113, that thinks it's building the vmmon module for VMWare 2.x, not 6.x.
After installing the update (see: http://platan.vc.cvut.cz/ftp/pub/vmware/vmware-any-any-update113.tar.gz) and running the script, everything seems to build successfully -- but attempting to run VMWare gives you:
Eventually, I was able to work around this issue by:
- Extracting the vmmon.tar file from the update.
- Editing the getversion.pl script with a text editor and changing line 66:
+++ print 'VME_V6';
- Save the file and tar up the directory.
- Re-run the runme.pl file -- which should rebuild the kernel modules correctly and allow you to start VMWare correctly.
