VMware rant

Yet another Evernote-style entry to make sure I won't forget it...

VMware Player on Xubuntu. From time to time it decides to re-compile itself, without the slightest chance to prevent it. Would not be a problem if it ran well but it fails to compile the network modules.

Now I've found what to do:
sudo mv /usr/lib/vmware/modules/binary /usr/lib/vmware/modules/binary.old
sudo vmware-modconfig --console --install-all --appname="VMware Player" --icon="vmware-player"
And it works! There must be a more elegant, geeky solution but this week - I simply do not care!
Thanks, AndreiVajnall!
