Just installed Vmware (latest stable) in my Gentoo box. Ran vmware-config.pl, apparently the config goes fine and a message shows up saying I can now run vmware.
So I rum vmware and a warning popsup to tell me that vmware is installed but not properly configured and that I should run vmware-config.pl again. What?
Take a closer look at the config proccess and noticed the following:

Code:

Starting VMware services:
   Virtual machine monitor                                            failed
   Virtual ethernet                                                   failed
   Bridged networking on /dev/vmnet0                                   done
   Host-only networking on /dev/vmnet1 (background)                    done
   Host-only networking on /dev/vmnet8 (background)                    done
   NAT service on /dev/vmnet8                                          done

Where Im not sure about those couple of failed.

Any ideas as to whats going on here?

Any replies shall be deeply appreciated.

after running vmware-config.pl try this:

Code:
/etc/vmware/init.d/vmware stop
rm /etc/vmware/not_configured
/etc/init.d/vmware start

I had the exact same problem, but solved it by changing my kernel configuration: make sure you have selected 'Module unloading' (MODULE_UNLOAD) in the 'Loadable module support' section.
