Haven't tested/tried on x64....

am running Fedora 8( 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.
