I have installed FC8 and fully updated it
My uname -r gives kernel 220.127.116.11-64.fc8
I installed latest VMwareTools-6.0.3-80004.i386.rpm
Then ran vmware-config-tools.pl
It gives me the following problems
1) My Network Manager now shows no network ( x under the network symbol on top panel ). Although eth0 exists and internet is working fine
2) while compilation it gave me the following error
Extracting the sources of the vmhgfs module.
