I've upgraded the kernel and distro to Backtrack R2 / Kernel 3.2.6. It works like a charm using the provided steps. However beside the all new goodies that are installed there is an aspect which makes me sad.
VMware 8.0.2 doesn't compile on this kernel, 3.2.6, and keep ask me for the Kernel Headers 3.2.6 location and like.
I've installed the sources and headers to but still the same mess.
Also I've tried to use unofficial patch from this location "weltall.heliohost.org/wordpress/2012/01/26/vmware-workstation-8-0-2-player-4-0-2-fix-for-linux-kernel-3-2-and-3-3/" but no luck.
The point is that you want to run some vmware over this new build think twice. Still ain't compatible with latest vmware workstation version and vmplayer.
