vmware and other modules compiled based on current kernel
i installed Vmware on my "Linux vakhos 2.6.18-4-xen-vserver-amd64 #1 SMP Mon Mar 26 12:49:59 CEST 2007 x86_64 GNU/Linux" Debian system. The perl script compiled some vmware modules for me based on the running kernel. What happens if i later update my kernel? Will these modules need to be recompiled? This could also be a more general question -not just for vmware...
