Ubuntu – Unable To Install VMware WorkStation 8 on ubuntu 12.04


Installing VMware 8.0.2 32bit

Ubuntu 12.04LTS 32bit BETA

My Kernel version is: 3.2.0-20-generic

vendettaowner@vendettaowner-desktop:~$ sudo sh VMware-Workstation-Full-8.0.2-591240.i386.bundle

Installs ok

When I launch I am asked to install modules which are compiled and loaded into the running kernel.

A window opens

VMware Kernel Module Updater

This fails on Virtual Network Device




When I try to add patch, following error:

vendettaowner@vendettaowner-desktop:~$ sudo ./patch-modules_3.2.0.sh
./patch-modules_3.2.0.sh: line 42: patch: command not found
