Default VMWARE wont start after the upgrade

HI I had vmware server 2.0 runnning perfectly until i updated the system last night using yum upgrade.

It is throwing segmentation fault error and while it looks that it started but it actually has not as I cannot connect to https://IPADDRESS:Port to manage VMS.

This is what I have in messages

Following is the output of uname command
Linux centos-server.domain.ca 2.6.18-238.9.1.el5 #1 SMP Tue Apr 12 18:10:13 EDT 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

IT seems to me some library needs to be linked or modules to be reloaded. Not sure !!!

Your help is much appreciated

I had this too. It turned out in my case that this is an issue mentioned in the CentOS 5.6 release notes, where a manual change I had previously had to make to /usr/sbin/vmware-hostd to get VMware Server to work under CentOS 5.4/5.5 had to be removed again to get it to work under 5.6.

If you have a line like "export LD_LIBRARY_PATH" at the end of vmware-hostd, comment it out again and you may find everything just works again.
