Building the vmmon module.
Using 2.6.x kernel build system.
make: Entering directory `/tmp/vmware-config7/vmmon-only'
make -C /usr/src/linux/include/.. SUBDIRS=$PWD SRCROOT=$PWD/. modules
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-7.193'
Makefile:438: .config: No such file or directory
I'm usually horrible at spotting make errors, but the last line above stated that there wasn't a .config in /usr/src/linux
I generally frown on using kernel packages from a distro, so my advice is to download a full source from one of the kernel mirrors, change the symbolic link of /usr/src/linux to the newly downloaded kernel, build a new kernel, then re-try the vmware-config.pl.
