Jordon and Alen thanks yesterday after doing a clean install of 10.10
which took about 2.5 hours this time includes transfer of 35 GB of
existing data from laptop to a USB hard disk and vice versa,
Vmware stopped working.
Upong googling here and there
I found patch for Vmware to work


on one of the Vmware communities they said 10.10 is not yet fully
supported as Host and Guest by Vmware
and for perl problem here is the solution I found


after doing all this the Vmware GUI disapperaed from Applications
menu( I am comfortable with command line).
Later on while playing a song in VLC the song after 2-3 minutes got
stuck in a loop and started producing echo of unpleasant kind.
I had tried to use a brand new  USB DVD writer to install the
installation hanged after certain time (appeared as the installer was
not getting any instruction)
So I decided to stick with 10.04 so by the time I am writing I have
wiped out all 10.10 traces on my system and it is 10.04.
Also this article
might be worth giving a look.
