VMWare Workstation 8.0.3 and Linux Kernel 3.3

As promised, i am upgrading my VMWare Workstation to the latest version, 8.0.3 and see if it works with Linux Kernel 3.3.x (i used 3.3.4).

First off, i removed all previous VMWare configurations and libraries by using this two commands (note that there are no space between vmware and *):
rm -rf /etc/vmware*
rm -rf /usr/lib/vmware*

Next, i start the VMWare installer using this command:
./VMware-Workstation-Full-8.0.3-703057.i386.bundle --ignore-errors

Installation works as intended and then, i used this patch (my previous patch mentioned on this blog post). Don't forget to replace this line in patch-modules_3.2.0.sh before continuing to reflect the version you used:
vmreqver=8.0.2
into
vmreqver=8.0.3

and finally, ran :
vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

voila..... everything works again.

Here's the screenshot of the latest VMWare Workstation running on Linux Kernel 3.3.4
