I worry that I’m illegal as of last night:
As network stack changes were introduces in linux kernel 2.6.21/2.6.22, the vmware modules currenlty refuse to compile. Based on some forum discussions, I’ve creates a small patch so that the modules compile again.
Simply apply it to the contents of vmnet.tar and reconfigure your vmware. I’ve tested it on an AMD64 platform, but not on a IA32 yet!
Update: Fixed a bug in the patch and added a link to vmnet.tar.
