I have a problem with VMware installation under Kubuntu with Kernel version 2.6.20. Compilation fails with this error message:

Unable to build the vmmon module.
Actually I need 2.6.20 due to missing sound card module in previous versions.
Under 2.6.19 compilation is okay.
Could someone help me with patching it or something like?
I can compile this sucessfull, but only uncompressing the tar and compiling.
Is the correct mode for this, uncompress the tar, made the changes and then recreate the tar and compile it normally?
Does anyone has a patch for Linux-2.6.20-rc5 with CONFIG_PARAVIRT enabled in the kernel?
The vmmon.ko compiled ok, but can't load. got a paravirt_ops unknown symbol while loading.
Thanks in advance,
I cannot get the patch to work with the Release version of AMD 64 Feisty Fawn and VMWare Workstation 5.5.3
vmware is installed, but it has not been (correctly) configured
for this system. To (re-)configure it, invoke the following command:
Very handy error is shown... Are there any debug logs or anything I can look at?
