my kernel:

[root@amd-x6 Downloads]# uname -a
Linux amd-x6 2.6.40.3-0.fc15.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Aug 16 04:10:59 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
vm-player: VMware-Player-3.1.4-385536.x86_64

When i looking for solution in this forum, I find some posts about older kernel, the solution is install some patch for vm, where i can find patch for my kernel?
I don't see it on vmware web.

TIA
