Anyone know the "pedigree" and quality of this any-any script?
VMware 6.0.x doesn't need the any-any patch to build on Fedora 7.  I'm
running
Workstation 6.0.1 now with the 2.6.23 updated F7 kernel, and nothing
special
had to be done to make it build once the kernel devel package was
installed.

That is good news.  I'm going to build an F8 box in a week or so, and I
try it without the any-any patch.

I am running Fedora 8( 2.6.23.1-49) with VMWare workstation 6.0.2(build-59824) on a T60p.

I found that Vmware would start up fine but if I tried to open an image file I would recieve:

(vmware-tray:15135): Gtk-WARNING **: GModule initialization check failed: Gtk+ version too old (micro mismatch)
/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

The work around was to set VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_GTK=no. This allowed me to open up images I had previously created. Now when I tried to start up the images I would get the "Version mismatch with vmmon module: expecting 167.0, got 161.0". So I tried reinstalling vmware and not running the any-any-update114 patch. Now, I do not get the version mismatch error but my system just locks up and I have to hold down the power button to reboot.

I tried downgrading to VMWare Workstation 6.0.0 and applying the any-any-update114 but my system still locks up.
