I emerged app-emulation/vmware-workstation-126.96.36.1991240 (after unmasking required parts) and it installed and ran, however when it ran it froze the whole system, being in the vmware group seems to have solved this. I think that the installation summary should mention users wishing to use the program should be in the vmware group, like in this example from media-libs/jpeg-8c-r1: >>> Messages generated by process 11243 on 2012-01-30 11:57:42 GMT for package media-libs/jpeg-8c-r1: WARN: postinst If you are switching from media-libs/libjpeg-turbo you might need to rebuild reverse dependencies: # emerge gentoolkit # revdep-rebuild --library libjpeg.so.8 NOTE: The --library argument is important here. Reproducible: Always
