Default VMware workstation 8 on linux 2.6.42 (Fedora 15) anyone?

A recent update installed the 2.6.42.3-2 kernel and now VMware
Workstation 8.0.2 (and 8.0.1) won't compile its modules. Does anyone
know if module patches have been issued. I've been unable to find them.

Secondarily, is anyone here running Workstation 8 with the 2.6.42
kernel?

Thanks!

i would "yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update kernel*"
"2.6.42.3-2" made me crazy and forced me to completly remove
VMwareWorkstation, remove pacthes and start again

last week "kernel-2.6.42.6-3.fc15.x86_64" arrived in updates-testing
and oh wonder after reboot the modules was rebuilt automatically
and vmware-service started - the first time that they are here before
calling vmware as root and wait compile

This link only discusses patches with the 3.2 kernel, not the
2.6.42 kernel. I realise they are closely related, but I doubt that
those patches will work for 2.6.X kernels.

"Good to hear" that I'm not the only one. :-) I've had to drop back the
a 2.6.41.10 kernel to also Workstation to run.

This is helpful. I'll try the 2.6.42.6-3 kernel and hope for the same
results. Thanks for your help!
