    I just wanted to start Fusion on my LION-iMac and it offer me an upgrade to 3.1.3.
    After download it try to install but then makes a kernel panic.

    Thanks for the hint. But leads to the same issue.

    I also read a bit on VMWare forum and now try to uninstall Fusion; even then I get a panic and need to power cycle my iMac. I hate power cycle !!!!

    Doesn't looks good ... I thing that the kernel extension might be part of the problem. Will do some more power cycle ...



    UPDATE: the uninstaller via Finder also didn't worked but a manual way described on VMWare support pages did the magic.
    After that I reinstalled Fusion from the begin; good to had the serial number handy ...

    So I think case is closed; it finally run under LION for what I can see.
