Found a solution for debian sid upgraded. This gets around the module-init-tools issues which cause the break. Note that this problem is not actually caused by either 2.6.21 or 2.6.22 kernels, but by a debian dependency issue with module-init-tools.
this is tested and works on vmware 2 installs.
This fix will correct the 'wrong version of vmware found problem.
:: Quote ::ok, workaround for 2.6.22 kernels and vmware:
1) download knihovny.cvut.cz/ftp/pub/vmware/ ... 110.tar.gz
3) note: the "runme.pl" script throws an error message for me, saying i run a unkown version of vmware (my version: 6)
if the any-any update works for you, continue with "vmware-config.pl"
4) copy the file "vmnet.tar" from the any-any-update110 to "/usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/" (overwrite existing vmnet.tar!)
5) run "vmware-config.pl"
6) everyting should work fine.
my kernel: 2.6.22-rc6-git1-slh-smp-1 roughneck
