    I have installed Ubuntu Studio (64bit) as per Falko's tutorial and am impressed by the fact that everything works so easily. My only gripe is having to reinstall VMWare server 2 every time there is a Kernel update. Is there any way around this?

    Many Thanks

    John

    No way around that, that is the problem with using closed source products that are out of the kernel tree.

    Thanks topdog for your quick reply. The obvious next question is what is the best alternative?
    Cheers

    Maybe use a distro for which vmware provides binary modules, in that case the modules just get installed no need to rebuild.
