VMWare player install messed up
 
I sucessfully installed vmware player but it seems part of it didn't install, as whenever I try to install or remove anything I get this: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/17428
It also means some programs that are queued to install after this do not get installed. It persists after restarting and for diffferent installations. Can anyone help?

Thanks,
Mark

Mark,

I have a similar problem and therefore have sidelined VMWare for the time being. I suspect that it is a kernel conflict. It used to run okay but it now does not respond. I haven't got around to see if it works on an older kernel.

(Oops. It works in XP though).

Regards
John

Sounds like the problem I had. I found the answer in the Ubuntu forums. It is a mismatch between the kernal sources and wmware module sources, or something like that. You have to enable some extra repos and it will fix. Do a search on that forum.
