>So I updated Debian testing yesterday and after that starting vmware just exits without actually doing anything. Since vmware is actually run via a wrapper program, it was not only eating the output (grr) but it was making testing it a bit harder.
Ultimatly I picked up a solution from the Ubuntu forums that resolved the problem. Basically libhal and libdbus got upgraded and VMware Workstation 5.5.2 build-29772 couldn’t deal with it.
Yay… now back to vmware goodness.
