I solved the problem with the command: rm -R /etc/vmware.
But now when I try install vmware the system said:
Quote:
Unable to copy the source file ./installer/services.sh to the destination file
/etc/init.d/vmware.

Execution aborted.
What can I do. I use ubuntu.

I already installed the vmware! I just had to copy the vmware to tmp directory and execute the installer.
