When I try to open a virtual machine using either vmware workstation or

8(2.6.23.1-49) and VMWare-Workstation 6.0.2-59824.x86_64 on a T60p. I
ran the latest vmware-any-any update114. Has any one had this problem or
know of any possible causes?


The guest OS is crashing, or the VMware application is crashing?  Are
there any crash errors or messages?


The application crashes with the following message:
/usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/filesystems/libgnome-vfs.so: undefined symbol: g_get_user_special_dir

I'm getting these messages in Fedora 7 x86_64, when logged in as myself, and running 'vmware &':

[rlc bobcp4 ~]$ vmware &
[1] 3414
[rlc bobcp4 ~]$ /usr/share/themes/Clearlooks/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:62: error: unexpected identifier `animation', expected character `}' /usr/share/themes/Clearlooks/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:62: error: unexpected identifier `animation', expected character `}'

[1]+  Done                    vmware
[rlc bobcp4 ~]$ uname -r
2.6.23.1-21.fc7

It looks like vmware crashes and freezes the entire system up, making a reboot of the machine necessary.

Thanks
