Calvin, do you have to use VMware, or do you have to virtualize? Fedora has excellent virtualization support built right in that might suit your needs.

Hi Calvin, I'm using VMware workstation 9.0.2 build-1031769 on F18. I had done just little tuning:

sudo yum install kernel-*
sudo cp /usr/src/kernels/3.9.3-201.fc18.x86_64/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /lib/modules/3.9.3-201.fc18.x86_64/build/include/linux/
sudo vmware

I hope could help.

Regards,

Ondrej
