more vmware woes


This is really stupid. I don't know what happened it just suddently stopped working. My problem now is that I can't get internet working in my guest Debian OS. I selected bridged networking and while its booting up it can't detect it. It won't load anything. The stupid thing is that this setup was working for the past few weeks and now it stopped. How can I fix this?

What should I check for? I mean I know that for a good while this setup was working perfectly. Now for some reason bridged networking is not working anymore. I'm not really sure why it would just stop.

try running /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl as root
so that your settings and such are rebuilt.

i have a file called rc.vmware in /etc/rc.d/ which i call as follows
when i run vmware:

bash rc.vmware start

and stop as follows after shutting down vmware:

bash rc.vmware stop

i do this from a script like this:

#!/bin/sh
sudo /etc/rc.d/rc.vmware start
vmware
sudo /etc/rc.d/rc.vmware stop

after a kernel recompile, you have to re-run vmware-config.pl
though to recreate the vmware modules.

good luck.

ps. sorry for the late response.
