Hi Richard

I've been using vmware server on Ubuntu AMD64 since 8.04.
I've upgraded my server along the way to now 9.10. I have upgraded the
vmware on three occasions. The last one was the first problem I
I used this webpage:

I've never bothered debianising the installer as  it seems to want to
put things in the right place anyway. Whenever I upgrade my Ubuntu I
only have to run the vmware-config.pl to recompile the modules for the
new kernel. Actually been easy until the latest update.
