Hi!

I have installed vmware-workstation 5.0.0.13124 on my AMD64. It installed without any problem. The configuration script, /opt/vmware/bin/vmware-config.pl works without any problem. And finally vmware itself works without any major problem.

But...
After each reboot vmware insists on that it isn't configuerd, and it asks me to run the configuration script once again. After doin that vmware works again.

Has anybody seen a similar problem and has some workaround?

My kernel is 2.6.11-gentoo-r9

hm... normally you only need to run 'vmware-config.pl' again when you upgrade your kernel or the workstation. Are you sure that you didn't make any changes that could be the reason for a reconfiguration?
