Please use proper punctuation. I have no idea what you executed exactly, what you're curious about or who/what rebooted your system.

VMware uses kernel modules. If they can't be loaded you may have to rebuild them for your current kernel version.
If that's not it then I'm pretty sure your syslog shows relevant messages related to VMware.

I rebooted it because after executing /dev/console my terminal went crazy. i can't type any commands because it keeps on creating a new line. i tried to run it using ng old kernel version but it didnt work
