Quick note on VMware products and openSUSE 11.2: There is a slightly different package selection needed to be able to successfully have VMware products build & run on openSUSE 11.2.
These are the packages you need to have installed:
kernel-syms #will also add dev packages
make #used to be selected by default
Having the above packages VMware Workstation 6.5.3 and above should build normally.
Possibly this is what's needed to get VMware Server 2.x up and running though I haven't tested it.
