Problems running VMWare Workstation 6.5.1

Reloaded my laptop this weekend w/ Kubuntu 9.04 as I was having problems and am redoing my laptop for dual boot purposes.  Before the reload i had no problems with runing VMWare Workstation 6.5.1, now after the reload I am unable to launch any of my VM’s.

Here is the error:

Failed to open device “/dev/vmci”: No such file or directory
Please make sure that the kernel module ‘vmci’ is loaded.
Module DevicePowerOn power on failed.

Any ideas?  Googling didn’t help out

    • Never mind the previous reply. VMI-enabled kernels are only used in the guest.

      You might try running the vmware-config.pl script again. I’ve read that the script creates the /dev/vmci device.
