When installing VMWare workstation 7 (I have a license / better than virtual box for me due to unity mode) in fc12 i686 I get an odd hang
You have to first install gcc and kernel-devel - which i've done - but now when I go to run it, it just... doesn't do anything. It says "Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel."
It says "Cancel" or "_install"
Hitting _Install however does nothing - it just ... closes the window and does nothing.
I've looked high and low through many forums and cannot find this fix anywhere.
Anyone else see this, or know what's going on?

Hey Hey - SELinux was enabled. Disabling this now gives me more, but now my user isn't able to run the program? Can you make a user with sudo privileges? Or how do you run an app like this from cli.. anyone? >.>
And I answer my own question
'/usr/bin/vmware-modconfig' --icon='vmware-workstation' --appname='VMware' --gcc='/usr/bin/gcc' --headers='/lib/ moduels/22.214.171.124-166.fc12.i686.PAE/build/include' --gcc-ignore-minor

My one question then is why do I need to run these in cli. Is it because my user is not root? I was under the impression that's the purpose of root - only being cli - so why would this install require root? Seems odd; any work around?
