VMWare server will not run after Debian Etch updates

Posted on 2007-08-20

VMWare didn't start after I installed the latest Etch updates. The error message is printed to the terminal, which is pretty useless if you're starting it from the GUI. Anyhow, the fix is pretty easy:

apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`

I guess the update had a new kernel and VMWare needed to re-install its hooks.
