10 The ebuild runs perfectly here, give it a go.
12 You *must* run as root after the install.
14 If complains about being unable to shutdown the vmware
15 services, rerun it using the -skipstopstart switch.
17 rc-update add vmware default will fix your redhat runlevel problems.
19 Make sure that the userid you're going to run vmware under is a member
20 of the vmware group.
22 Hope this helps.
