This is vmware 5 (you MUST upgrade - multiple snapshots of one vm, with multiple branches!) on Windows XP.
But I just restored a snapshot and tried again (this time updating only the kernel and not kernel-sources), and this time no problems with the ethernet adapter.
I suspect it has something to do with vmware-tools, which I'm not at all happy with (I had to fix a broken symlink for XFreeconfig before they would do anything useful at all, and they won't re-compile properly for the grsec kernels, and ...)
Yeah Ive got VMware 5 installed, but I havent finished moving all my images over into it. As I've been testing out glibc modifications for CentOS/3ES/Whitebox lately, so Im trying to minimize variables for testing. Glibc believe it or not, is even more complex than the kernel in terms of subtlety.
To close the thread on this, yes its VMWare, you must reconfigure vmware anytime you install a new kernel. VMWare used kernel modules that need to be built for the kernel you are running. So, you will need the kernel-sources.
