that can be fixed with using /dev/vmnet1 instead of the /compat device
in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/vmware.sh. I needed this change since about
two months now, IIRC.
Since about two weeks this no longer enough, however. I now get
"Could not open /dev/vmnet1: Device not configured" when I start
I also tried to update /compat/linux/dev/vmnet1 to match the
/dev/vmnet1, and that got me just a litte bit farther. I now get
"Could not get address for /dev/vmnet1: Invalid argument
Failed to configure ethernet0." I added some printf's to
linux_ioctl.c, and it seems the linux_ioctl_socket() gets a device
name which is "", i.e. the empty string.
I am clueless as to where to go next.

I didn't get that error, and I am also building from source. Did you
CVSUP recently? My VMWare2 Makefile is version 1.41, dated.
