vmware workstation 6 on gentoo

after installation:

gpasswd -a USERNAME vmware

to run vmware:

VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_GTK=yes /opt/vmware/workstation/bin/vmware

when I’ve tried to power on a virtual machine, I’ve got this error:

Unable to change virtual machine power state: Failed to connect to peer process

solution for me was:

chmod o+x /opt/vmware/workstation/lib/bin/vmware-vmx
