I don't know how easy it is to remove #include <linux/config.h> from the code for everything, but in order to get VMware Server working, (I found this when struggling with the same problem), I created config.h:


i didn't read this thread from the beginning, but...

assuming  we talking about VMware-server-1.0.1-29996:

- under /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source is a file called "vmnet.tar"
- (saving and) extracting (tar -xf vmnet.tar) gives a directory called "vmnet-only"
- in this directory is a file called "procfs.c"
- at line 34 is the magical "#include <linux/config.h>" ( found with grep -snHRi "linux/config.h" vmnet-only )

- commenting this line with /* ... */
- tar'ing this ( tar -cf vmnet.tar vmnet-only)

that all, so far.

vmware-config.pl gives a warning about "blabla-smac-blabla", but runs...

okay ?
