The last two kernels 2997 & 2999 no longer allows VMWare to build. Anybody have a fix?

Jim

can't say something to kernels 2997 & 2999, but for previous:

cd /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/
tar xvf vmmon.tar
cd vmmon-only/include
vi compat_kernel.h

line 80:
#define __NR_compat_exit __NR_exit
+#if LINUX_VERSION_CODE < KERNEL_VERSION(2,6,19)
    static inline _syscall1(int, compat_exit, int, exit_code);
-
+#endif

tar -cf vmmon.tar vmmon-only
vmware-config.pl -d
------------------------------------------------------

this advise doesn't work any more !

I'm seeing the same problem on FC6 and haven't been able to find a fix yet on google.

With VMwareWorkstation-5.5.3-34685 and running the 2.6.20-1.2925.fc6 I cannot rebuild the modules after applying the manual fixes (above) and trying a fresh install of vmware and applying the any-any patch.

John

okay. i'm running VMware-server-1.0.2-39867.i386 and a 2.6.20-1.2925.fc6 kernel.

the fix/workaround above doesn't work with the current f7 kernel.
i hadn't test it before sending my mail, but afterwards.

sorry again.

- to me today, it seem it's bad to jump out of the bed, in the computer, answering on emails, before reading the whole thread. my fault !-


anyway, i can't believe that the modules from server and workstation are that different.

i tested the last evaluation VMware Workstation 5.5.3, some days/weeks ago, and if iirc, i had to fix vmmon module the some way, but moved the workstation to /dev/null, realizing that this sh*t want to phone with M$.


anyway, while writing this, i see there is the fix on the list...
