VMware Workstation and Linux 2.6.27

Today I received a comment from Kang about a fix for VMware Workstation 5.5 and Linux 2.6.27.

You get the file here and of course at his place, too.

It works like any other vmware-any-any-update:

wget https://uruz.org/files/vmware-update-2.6.27-5.5.7.tar.gz
tar xvzf vmware-update-2.6.27-5.5.7.tar.gz
cd vmware-update-2.6.27-5.5.7/

Good luck.

edit: The archives were updated. Thank you, Kang.
