vmware workstation "Could not open /dev/vmmon"
10.04 LTS 64-bit
VMware Workstation 7.0.1 build-227600
I expect my guest OS to load.
I get an error "Could not open /dev/vmmon..."
This issue is due to the VMware service not starting and is not consistent. It happens about 80-90% of the time after a reboot. The other 10-20% of the time the guest loads fine. I am able to resolve the issue by using the command "sudo service vmware start" in a terminal session but that only works until the system is rebooted again. This issue is new since I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
