Well I have been able to get vmware running on Foresight 2 it was a bit of a mission as since Vmware have opensourced their vmware tools the foresight developers have built the tools into the kernel by default. The problem is that when you try to install vmware workstation or vmware player they would complain about the modules already installed and fail.
After manually deleting these module files I was able to install and run vmware on the workstation.
All was not lost though while I was trying to get this to work. I was able to build and run a QEMU (kvm) machine and run that so I could work and keep running. As one of my friends said they need to get virt-manager built and running on Foresight so that the machines can have bridged networking.
So this is a start at least.
