Package: nvidia-kernel-source
Version: 1:11.0.1-1
Architecture: i386 amd64
Severity: normal


my Live Debian OS uses the configure option of the X program to create a basic 
xorg.conf file and after sets some values in this file,

the command fails when loading the vmware driver, in i386 architecture and 
amd64 also,

X -configure -nolisten tcp
vmware: Please ignore above "FATAL: Module vmwgfx not found."
