I have just upgraded to 11.2 from ubuntu 9.10 on my IBM / Lenovo T61 laptop. ( I will post a better blog about that later)
What I wanted to mention here is that the current vMware workstation 6.5.3 does not want to run on my system.
I have found this post http://k—–k.blogspot.com/2009/09/install-vmware-workstation-653-on.html
Which has teps for compiling the modules yourself but by the look of things is based on 32bit openSUSE.
I will see if I can get it working here on my 64bit machine
