1. Download the file "source.tar.lzma" from here, and copy it to /usr/lib/vmware/modules/.

2. In the terminal as root, change directory to /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source and back up the existing five (5) *.tar files:

      Code:
for i in ./*.tar; do mv $i $i.original; done


3. Change directory to /usr/lib/vmware/modules and unpack the replacement *.tar files:

      Code:
tar -xvf source.tar.lzma


It will unpack five (5) replacement *.tar files into /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/.

Now start VMware and let it build the new kernel modules in the normal manner.

Tested on 64-bit VMware Player only.

I followed the instructions, and have VMware Player 4.0 running on my 64 bit Aptosid box.

Yes, I'd rather have VirtualBox installed here, but I've no HW support for virtualization on this system.
