There is a patch from VMWare for that.  It's called update42, you can
google for "update42 vmware".  You unpack the tar, compile the little C
program and run it giving the installed VMWare binary,
/usr/local/lib/vmware/bin/vmware, as a command line agument.  It patches
the binary so that it runs with Linux8 userland.
