Re: VMware Workstation 6.0 Final - NoGo on F7T4

Just a Heads up...

VMware Workstation 6.0 was released a couple of days ago and does not
run or compile on F7T4. At least not yet. The latest available "Platan"
patches (vmware-any-any-update109) also report back that this is an
unsupported version of VMware and refuse to install.

We may have to wait a little while for the 6.0 patches to catch up...



I've been running/compiling the 'stock' 6.0 beta and now the release version.

The 'trick' is to remove one option from
/usr/src/kernels/KERNEL-VER/Makefile (replace 'KERNEL_VER' with the
appropriate name for your kernel, e.g., '2.6.21-1.3149.fc7-PAE-i686').

Edit Makefile, look for and remove '-Wextra' (its on line 318 in the
Makefile for my system).

'vmware-config.pl' works after that.

One more thing: 6.0 includes new code, I think to support copy/paste
functions, that causes issues if you run with SELinux enabled.
Easiest workaround is to edit /etc/vmware/locations to disable the
loading of this module.

I've needed no other 'patches'.
