Install VMWare Workstation 6.5 on Ubuntu 9.10
I was able to get everything installed by skipping the installation of the modules on the inital install. Then when I tried to open the application it installed the modules without any more problems.
Seems for at least Ubuntu 9.10 the fix ??
# chmod +x VMware-Workstation-6.5.3-185404.x86_64.bundle
# export VMWARE_SKIP_MODULES=true
