I have installed the vmware-workstation 5 last RC (have not gotten the
official 5 yet), updated it with "update90", and then ran it successfully on
a x86_64 (Opteron) FC4T2 system.
It would be "nice" if the vmware "notes" in the FC3 RELEASE-NOTES
included in FC4 (hint, hint) since you still need to copy (cp -rp)
the /dev/vm* files to /etc/udev/devices so they will exist of reboots
(wotherwise you will need to rerun vmware-config.pl every time you reboot. I
have not tried 4.5.2 so I do not know if it will work.
The udev part is no longer required, I think it was either one of the
vmware-any-any updates or udev that resolved it. When I recently
installed my new laptop with FC3, I didn't have to do any monkeying
around with udev stuff to get the devices to show up.
