Vmware won't compile on Hardy

Vmware server and workstation are both currently broken on the kernel version in Hardy. You need to install a patch to get them to compile. Vmware server also requires xinetd. I changed
to force all services to only listen on localhost with
 bind            =

Not only that, but vmware-server-console is busted too!

/usr/lib/vmware-server-console/bin/vmware-server-console: /usr/lib/vmware-server-console/lib/ version `GCC_3.4' not found (required by /usr/lib/
/usr/lib/vmware-server-console/bin/vmware-server-console: /usr/lib/vmware-server-console/lib/ no version information available (required by /usr/lib/
/usr/lib/vmware-server-console/bin/vmware-server-console: /usr/lib/vmware-server-console/lib/ version `GCC_4.2.0' not found (required by /usr/lib/

Fix it with

sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/vmware-server-console/lib/
sudo ln -sf /lib/ /usr/lib/vmware-server-console/lib/
