Re: patches for VMware Workstation 7.1.4 x86_64 on fedora 15

* * * * * I rate the patch Five Stars.
* It installed as the instructions indicate and did not even require a restart.
* I have now used the patch for several days no performance problems or other issues.
* I do not believe it to be a security problem.
* * It even works with VM Ware workstation's Unity mode. I am using a decent but older nvidia card.
Unity allows the windows for win7 programs to be managed by your Linux desktop manager. I am using the standard Gnome Shell. ( a topic of another post).

Smile Re: patches for VMware Workstation 7.1.4 x86_64 on fedora 15

I have been trying to get VMWare Workstation 7.1.5 with kernel 2.6.41 on F15 all morning, and finally got it!

The problem for me was initially compiling the vmmon package.
After I solved that I've had the standard issue with compiling vmnet package.

But as I now solved it i thought to share it with you.

In the end all I did was backup the /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/*.tar files
Then replacing them with unpacking the attached tar files in the same directory.
(I have put in all the patched tar files expect vsock.tar as I had to go below the upload limit so I uploaded it separately)
Then I run vmware from console, which ended up compiling everything as expected.

Then startingt vmware from the menu as a user worked as expected!

Yeay finally I can get some work done again =]

//FredZake
Attached Files
File Type: bz2 vmmodules.tar.bz2 (954.5 KB, 309 views)
File Type: tar vsock.tar (920.0 KB, 261 views)

The vmblock.tar file seems to be corrupt. Can you re-post? The other modules are compiling fine with 2.6.41.
