Just a follow on from the original post, I've had a couple of emails regarding building the vmware kernel modules using ubuntu. Apparently vsock still fails ?? I've had no feedback here but a few downloads so I'l add this patch for anyone that see's
When trying to load the vsock module. This patch is for vmware-config.pl located in the /usr/bin directory. Just patch up that file and rerun vmware-config.pl and all should be fine. Let me know how you get on peops !!!!!!!!
