I have a OpenSuSE 11 running on my laptop VMware Workstation 6.5.1 recently. During VMware Tools installation, I found a weird error show as below:

“The following VMware kernel modules have been found on your system that were not installed by the VMware Installer. Please remove them then run this installer again.”



Execution aborted.

VMware kernel

Solutions are:

# rm /lib/modules/
# rm /lib/modules/
# rm /lib/modules/
# rm /lib/modules/

Configure VMware Tools again!
# vmware-config-tools.pl

Probably you may refer to VMware tools for Linux for more about VMware Tools installations.
