    Kernel Module Updater failing

    aaroncampbell Novice

      I've upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 and now I can't use VMWare Workstation anymore.  I have version 8.0.3, but when I run it I'm prompted with "Before you can run VMWare, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel." and given the option to "Cancel" or "Install".

      Then I click Install and am prompted for my sudo password.  When it runs the updates, the compiling of the "Virtual Network Device" seems to fail.

      Then I get an error "Unable to start services" that tells me to check a log file for details.

      I'm attaching the log file.  Also, if it makes a difference, I first had this issue on 8.0.2 but when I saw 8.0.3 was out I downloaded and updated but still had the same problem.
