install workstation on linux mint 12
03/14/12 at 10:12:06
 
I am using Mint 12 on 2 laptops.

I have recently installed Vmware workstation on both laptops.

On my 32-bit laptop, the command is
sudo sh VMware-Workstation-Full-7.1.5-491717.i386.bundle

Everything does fine.

But when I try to launch vmware workstation, I get a popup
“before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel”  and I click on “Install” on that.
It asks for the root password, which I supply, and
it starts compiling “Virtual Machine Monitor” and it stops with an error and a reference to a log file.
The log file has the following:

# cat  /tmp/vmware-root/setup-8601.log


finishes with

Mar 14 15:16:03.688: app-3079329472| Failed to compile module vmmon!


$ uname -r
3.0.0-12-generic


Can anyone help?
