VMware Server On Ubuntu 8.04 Mini-Howto 

When upgrading from Ubuntu 7.10 to 8.04 my VMware server stopped working, this what I had to do to get it up and running:

Needed if upgrading VMware installation:

sudo ./vmware-install.pl

VMware wont compile with the new kernel, use this patch:

wget http://vmkernelnewbies.googlegroups.com/web/vmware-any-any-update-116.tgz
tar -zxf vmware-any-any-update-116.tgz
cd vmware-any-any-update-116

Apply the patch:

sudo ./runme.pl
sudo vmware-config.pl

VMware console wont run without this:

cp /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libgcc_s.so.1/libgcc_s.so.1

You might need gcc3.4 as well.
