VMware WS 4.5.2 is known to work on Fedora Core 3 after the following workarounds are used:


You must upgrade the kernel modules and configuration using the unofficial vmware-any-any-* toolkit available from:


After vmware-config.pl is run and the VMware modules are loaded, the following command creates the /sys/class/* nodes needed for udev:

cp -rp /dev/vm* /etc/udev/devices/
Once you get the download:

$ wget http://platan.vc.cvut.cz/ftp/pub/vmware/vmware-any-any-update86.tar.gz
$ tar xvzf vmware-any-any-update86.tar.gz ; cd  vmware-any-any-update86 ; ./runme.pl
$ cp -rp /dev/vm* /etc/udev/devices/
Answer the questions, and install some guest OS's.
aka "jlc" on irc.
