Hello-

I am running kernel 2.6.11 at the present moment.
I downloaded the VMware-workstation-5.0.0-13124.tar.gz file from their
website and executed
emerge -v vmware-workstation from the command line.
The emerge process goes fine.

Output Indicates:
"You need to run /opt/vmware/bin/vmware-config.pl to complete the install."
hence
/opt/vmware/bin/vmware-config.pl

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your
running
kernel? [/lib/modules/2.6.11-gentoo-r8/build/include]

While building vmmon module, I have

VMware 2 or VMware Express detected, building for VMware 2, VMware Express and VMware Workstation 4.0.x.
Using 2.6.x kernel build system.

The module loads perfectly in the running kernel.

I configured the network using the wizard.. simple enough. Enabled nat and bridged connection.

Then this:

Extracting the sources of the vmnet module.

Building the vmnet module.

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

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".

Enjoy,

--the VMware team

Obviously there is something wrong. When you try to run the vmware binaries: (as user and root)

"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."

The problem lies here:

Virtual machine monitor failed
Virtual ethernet failed

I have searched the internet for any documentation regarding installing VMware on Gentoo, but to no avail.
Any help would be appreciated.

It seems like you're building the modules for VMWare 4.x rather than VMWare 5.x (which is what you emerged). No idea why though...8O

Same problem here and the above DOES NOT solve it. It is far more complicated then a configuration file. Its VMWare not building the proper modules. No idea why as my bro has the same kernel (2.6.13) and his builds with the proper Workstation 5 modules.

Have you solved this problem Lokheed?

Mine seems to compile moduels for 4.0.x too, and it's not working properly.
The /etc/init.d/vmware start will give me bunch of things that weren't able to start.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem??

My VMware was not building modules for 5.0, and found that /opt/vmware/lib/bin/vmware was linked against libgnomecanvasmm-2.6.so.1, which I did not have. After emerge -u libgnomecanvasmm, I am now able to build VMware 5.0 modules.

You can double check what you may need to build by running
Code:
ldd /opt/vmware/lib/bin/vmware
and seeing if there are any other libraries vmware is looking for...

I tried emerging libgnomecanvasmm, which emerged its 2.12 version, because I'm using gnome 2.12.
I have no idea how I have to solve this problem. Can anyone help me?

Yikes! It looks like you have a lot of outdated packages.
Code:
emerge -u --deep world
and see if that gets you up to date...
