Not sure whats up. But here is what i have done.

Code:
gentoo1 root # emerge --pretend vmware-workstation

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild  N    ] app-emulation/vmware-workstation-5.0.0.13124


Ready to go so:

Code:
gentoo1 root # emerge vmware-workstation
Calculating dependencies ...done!
>>> emerge (1 of 1) app-emulation/vmware-workstation-5.0.0.13124 to /
...
>>> Unpacking source...
>>> Unpacking VMware-workstation-5.0.0-13124.tar.gz to /var/tmp/portage/vmware-workstation-5.0.0.13124/work
...
* You need to run /opt/vmware/bin/vmware-config.pl to complete the install.
...
* After configuring, type 'vmware' to launch
 *
 * Also note that when you reboot you should run:
 * /etc/init.d/vmware start
 * before trying to run vmware.  Or you could just add
 * it to the default run level:
 * rc-update add vmware default

 * Caching service dependencies...
>>> app-emulation/vmware-workstation-5.0.0.13124 merged.
>>> Recording app-emulation/vmware-workstation in "world" favorites file...


So off to configure it: Real question with the VMware 2 part?? (see below VMware 2 or VMware Express detected, building for VMware 2)

Code:
gentoo1 root # /opt/vmware/bin/vmware-config.pl
Making sure services for VMware Workstation are stopped.

Thank you.

Trying to find a suitable vmmon module for your running kernel.

None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Workstation is suitable for your
running kernel.  Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes]

Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

Do you want networking for your virtual machines? (yes/no/help) [yes] n

Starting VMware services:
   Virtual machine monitor                                            failed

The configuration of VMware Workstation 5.0.0 build-13124 for Linux for this
running kernel completed successfully.

You can now run VMware Workstation by invoking the following command:
"/opt/vmware/bin/vmware".


so now (even though I know its buggy) start it:

Code:
gentoo1 root # /opt/vmware/bin/vmware
vmware is installed, but it has not been (correctly) configured
for this system. To (re-)configure it, invoke the following command:
/opt/vmware/bin/vmware-config.pl.


So call up the config script again and I get:

Code:
gentoo1 root # /opt/vmware/bin/vmware-config.pl
Making sure services for VMware Workstation are stopped.

/etc/vmware/init.d/vmware: line 1008: [: -: integer expression expected
/etc/vmware/init.d/vmware: line 931: [: -: integer expression expected
Stopping VMware services:
   Virtual machine monitor                                            failed
Unable to stop services for VMware Workstation

Execution aborted.


Thats all she wrote. Nothing after that

Linux sources and the headers are here. Ideas?

Several threads on this already.

Basically the /dev entries aren't created.

Search under vmware and the solution is posted in several of those threads.

nope sorry,

fixed.

Module unload support has to be built in the kernel (which it isnt by default).

works fine now.
