Unhappy VMWare 3.1.6 on Kubuntu 12.04.1

Hello good people of linuxquestions.

I'm having trouble installing VMWare 3.1.6.
I have set the shell to bash before applying a patch.
It's the patch.
I'm getting No protocol specified messages several times.
Anyway when I start VMWare I get the messages that several modules have to be recompiled.

The (graphical) output is:

Virtual Machine Monitor OK
Virtual Network Device OK
VMWare Blocking Filesystem NOT OK
Virtual Machine Communication Interface OK
VMCI Sockets OK

Then I get the message that compilaton failed, see the log file.
Here's a part of the log file:

Feb 12 10:56:08.521: app-3076372160| Trying to find a suitable PBM set for kernel 3.2.0-29-generic-pae.
Feb 12 10:56:08.522: app-3076372160| Building module vmblock.
Feb 12 10:56:08.522: app-3076372160| Extracting the sources of the vmblock module.

Feb 12 10:56:12.640: app-3076372160| Failed to compile module vmblock!

Please help I need VMWare.

Thanks in advance.
