  1. vmware...yet again !@#$%^&

    2008 with kernel source and headers installed, vmware 5.5.5 install
    fails at creation of vmmon...even after finding the matching headers for
    kernel

    install any-any-update115...same result

    uninstall/remove all evidence of 5.5.5 and start again from scratch with
    the vmware 5.0.0 disk ...same failure

    run any-any patch again

    return to vmware-install.pl and it fails in the exact same spot

    the air is blue in the lab this morning gents

    google/vmware groups useless as nipples on a bull

    any further clues?

    get the latest vmware server it is free and compiles fine on mdv2008
    with no problems as long as you are using a newer kernel then the 1 that
    came with the distro ( updates)
