Hi, this appears to be an accessibility issue.  Could you please check that you have all the required dependencies installed, that gtkmm was compiled with USE="accessibility", that libview and libsexy were recompiled after gtkmm was built with accessibility, and that VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_GTK is not set in your environment?

If you need help verifying any of these things, let me know and I'll provide more instructions.  Thanks...  5:)
Comment 2 Mike Auty (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-01-26 18:37:54 UTC
Please also check whether the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable is set, as this is often a source of the error message you're receiving.

Re-merging libview and libsexy fixed the issue.  Now there's just the serial number thing...
