I couldn't make it work, VMWare complains that the source in /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.whatever/include doesn't match the installed/running kernel, so it can't build the required modules. I got the source from the Adept Manager application (plus the build-essential package). Do you folks know anything about that? How can I get a kernel source that will match the running kernel?

I don't know why you installed version 10.10 when the 10.04 LTS is more 
stable, my guess is you wanted the latest version, I installed both and 
I can tell you 10.04 is a lot better and will have better support than a 
6 month release will ever have.

I'm using Trinity on Debian Squeeze and 10.04 LTS, I removed 10.10 I saw 
no reason to keep it.
