I just tried to configure VMware server beta 2 (build 22874) with kernel 2.6.16-1.2118_FC6 and found this error buried in the output: In file included from /tmp/vmware-config0/vmmon-only/linux/driver.h:20, from /tmp/vmware-config0/vmmon-only/linux/driver.c:49: /tmp/vmware-config0/vmmon-only/./include/compat_wait.h: At top level: /tmp/vmware-config0/vmmon-only/./include/compat_wait.h:60: error: conflicting types for ‘poll_initwait’ include/linux/poll.h:62: error: previous declaration of ‘poll_initwait’ was here It wouldn't surprise me if the Linux kernel developers changed an API that broke VMware.
