    Seems you need the development packages installed for kernel development
    - since 11.4 came out today, VMware doesn't have a pre-built set of
    modules for the kernel you're using, so it will have to build them before
    it'll run.

    Fortunately, VMware has automated the process as long as you have the
    kernel development packages installed along with the development tools.

    The same problem. I've installed the kernel development template. Kernel sources available. But vmplayer fails to recompile vmmon!
    The log file is:

    Thumbs up Re: How to make VMplayer work on OpenSUSE 11.4

    Hi All,

    finally solved, used the following:


    patch-modules_v62-opensuse.sh
    Change this script to use the following file (Unzipped):

    vmware-7.1.3-2.6.37-9-generic.patch.zip

    And working :-)

    Thanks for your help!

    Tx - solved

    Just a reminder for anybody:
    - install through Yast "patch"
    - rename file vmware-7.1.3-2.6.37-9-generic.patch to vmware-7.1.3-2.6.37-rc5.patch
