waktu saya searching di google, kebanyakan yg diinstall udah yg versi 7.1.4, dan perlu pake patching, jd saya akali dengan cara:
0. preparing kernel header http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/index.php/Preparing_Kernel_Headers
1. download VMware-Player-3.1.4-385536.i386.bundle
2. lewat terminal saya ke direktori hasil download VMware-Player
3. chmod +x VMware-Player-3.1.4-385536.i386.bundle
4. sudo ./VMware-Player-3.1.4-385536.i386.bundle
5. ikuti cara installasi default sampai selesai
6. sudo cp -rf /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source /home/mugna/
7.sudo vmware-installer -u vmware-player
8.ikuti uninstall secara default
9. ke direktori saya menyimpan VMware-Workstation-Full-7.0.0-203739.i386.bundle
10. chmod +x VMware-Workstation-Full-7.0.0-203739.i386.bundle
11. sudo ./VMware-Workstation-Full-7.0.0-203739.i386.bundle
12. ikuti cara install default sampai selesai
13.sudo mv /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source.def
14.sudo mv /home/mugna/source /usr/lib/vmware/modules/
15. vmware-modconfig –console –install-all

catatan:
cara saya ini akal-akalan karena g nemu patch buat versi vmware workstation 7.0.0
