Yes, that is the way to solve the blocking. But even after masking
vmware-player, I have trouble getting vmware-workstation-7.1.1.282343
installed.

How can mware-workstation-7.1.1.282343 depend on vmware-modules-238, and
vmware-modules-238 depend on vmware-workstation-7.1.0.261024. To me this
is bug.

Probably mware-workstation-7.1.1.282343 should depend on
vmware-modules-238.1 (notice the .1 in the version 238.1), which is also
available in the overlay.

Just type this in ur terminal :

sudo sed -i 's/vmware-modules-238/vmware-modules-238.1/' /var/lib/layman/vmware/app-emulation/vmware-workstation/vmware-workstation-7.1.1.282343.ebuild

&&



sudo ebuild /var/lib/layman/vmware/app-emulation/vmware-workstation/vmware-workstation-7.1.1.282343.ebuild manifest

Hello.



I am having some trouble installing vmware-workstation from the vmware

overlay:





# emerge -avt vmware-workstation



These are the packages that would be merged, in reverse order:



Calculating dependencies... done!

[ebuild *N f *] app-emulation/vmware-workstation-7.1.1.282343 *USE="vmware-tools -doc -vix" 0 kB [1]

For more information about Blocked Packages, please refer to the following

section of the Gentoo Linux x86 Handbook (architecture is irrelevant):



http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?full=1#blocked









Any help?

Well, you are using an overlay so.. caveat emptor.
