VMWare Workstation 6.5 segfault on Fedora 10 x86_64

VMWare Workdstation 6.5 is causing segmentation fault on Fedora 10 x86_64 when trying to execute it. The message is:

/usr/lib/vmware/bin/launcher.sh: line 231: 13748 Segmentation fault      "$binary" "$@"

To solve the problem you need to do this:

# mv /usr/lib/vmware/modules/binary /usr/lib/vmware/modules/binary.old
# vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

After build is over start VMWare, it should work now.
