I have had my share of trouble finding the right vmware-any-any patches to install the most recent version of VMware Workstation on my local box, so for your convenience (and mine), here's a list with a few of the recent versions of the patch, with downloadlinks:
- vmware-any-any-update-116 (I just installed the latest WS (6.0.4-93057) on Ubuntu 8.04 with 2.6.24-19 and this patch is no longer needed!)
- vmware-any-any-update-117 (very unstable, according to author, use with caution!)
Update: find a newer version of the vmware-any-any-update-117 here. It helped me build the VMware modules (well, vmnet and vmmon) nicely!
