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` /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl
I guess the update had a new kernel and VMWare needed to re-install its hooks.
