Did you rebuild your initrd after installing vmware-server?
It sounds like not, so rebuild your initrd with the command
sudo update-initramfs -u
VMWare Server ought to work after reboot then.
> VMware server is, for the most part, working fine. I have Windows 2000,
> various Linux incantations and some 3rd-party VMs all running - it's a
> marvelous thing
> However, whenever, I reboot, and then try to run a VM, VMware server
> fails to load the VM with:
> Unable to change virtual machine power state. The process exited with
> an error: End of error message.
> Which is rather uninformative.
> Now, if I:
> aptitude reinstall vmware-server
> then things start working as normal.
> Can anyone help? Thanks?
