I have a machine running openSUSE 12.1 Beta 1:
Linux DreamCatcher.site 3.1.0-rc7-3-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Sep 28
14:41:36 UTC 2011 (50fb02f) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I haven't tried older versions of VMware Workstation, but VMware
Workstation 8 (8.0.0-471780.x86_64) is definitely not installing out
of the box. The "vmnet" module does not compile. Fortunately there is
a patch / workaround, which I found on via VMware and Arch Linux
sites:

http://communities.vmware.com/message/1842875
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VMware

This script worked:

$ cd /tmp
$ wget http://88.191.137.189/vmware3.1rc.sh
$ chmod +x vmware3.1rc.sh
# ./vmware3.1rc.sh
