    The old instruction sets won't work with opensuse 11.4 since there has been a huge change going on the new kernel, the way opensuse structures and package them!
    The install of vmware Workstation worked without a glitch on previous versions of opensuse. We need a new instruction set for all to see!

    Hi
    So what error are you getting? Is it the autoconf.h and utsrelease.h not found?

    I am trying to start up the vmware workstation as a normal user in a shell and receive this:
    PicPaste - vmware_startup_error-CHNsosa4.png
    The contents of the setup-8885.log is here: setup-8885.log - Pastebin.com
    Whatever the error messages are, the application doesn't find the necessary files to compile where they are supposed to be. because opensuse changed the interface to the kernel files!

    VMware workstation 7.1.4 installed fine for me as an upgrade to 7.1.3 on openSUSE 11.4 (x86_64). To install 7.1.3 required I get some patches discussed on the vmware site VMware Communities: VMware Workstation 7.1.3 Linux kernel... and patch the modules to work with the 2.6.37 kernel.

    To get VMware workstation to run after the install requires you to start haldaemon (/etc/init.d/haldaemon start) to accomplish manually.

    This is something I worked out installing VMware Player. I had similar problems with Kerlnel Headers etc., but this solution solved all of these problems.

    idiot proof simple install x64 version of VMware Player 3.1.4 on OpenSuse 11.4 x64
    probably works with x86 aswell. pls check and comment

    this fixes vmware complaining about problems with:

    gcc
    kernel headers
    Problem with: Cannot execute command ' ''\''/usr/bin/vmware-modconfig'\'' --icon='\''vmware-player'\'' --appname='\''VMware'\'' --gcc='\''/usr/bin/gcc'\'' --headers='\''/lib/modules/2.6.37.1-1.2-desktop/build/include'\'' --gcc-ignore-minor ''. -blablabla

    download latest vmware bundle from vmware homepage, for example VMware-Player-3.1.4-385536.x86_64.bundle

    install vmware player by:
    terminal: (change the name of the bundle according to your version
    sudo sh VMware-Player-3.1.4-385536.x86_64.bundle

    choose yast -> software management: (if you have some of this installed, make sure you update to the latest version)
    install latest gcc
    install latest gcc45
    install latest libgcc45
    install latest libgcc45-32bit
    install latest libgcj45
    install latest kernel-devel
    install latest kernel-syms

    terminal:
    sudo vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

    now you may start vmware player
    perfect, all works

    This should fix the problems with VMware workstation aswell.

    no need to hassle with hacks tricks or tweaks.

    CREDIT TO ME.

    Thanks a lot!
    This also works after a kernel update without "reinstalling" vmware workstation.
