        Yes, that fixed it on my Kubuntu 9.10 installation (adding the line to /etc/vmware/bootstrap).  Thanks!

          Workstation 6.5.3 seems to work will on 2.6.30.5-43.fc11.x86_64.  The only thing not working is sound in the guests.

              Your patch is great!

               

               

              Was experiencing vmware kernel upgrade problems after upgrading my Ubuntu Jaunty to the Ubuntu Karmic test build.

               

               

              Your patch solves it

                I applied the patch to Ubuntu 9.10 running kernel 2.6.31-13-generic 32-bit and vmware server 2.0.1-156745.i386.  For some reason the line numbers in the patch were always a few lines off, so I applied the patch manually and saved my tarballs.  Working great!  Thanks for your efforts!  If anybody's interested in the patch for 32-bit that worked for me, let me know and I'll take the time to make one that works with the original author's install script.

                      Guys-

                       

                      Am trying to apply Krellan's  patch from July 17 and shell script from July 19 to a fresh install of 64 bit Workstation 6.5.3 on an FC11 installation of kernel 2.6.30.8.64.fc11.x86_64.

                       

                       

                       

                       

                       

                       

                       

                       

                       

                      Unfortunately, I am getting the checksum errors:

                      Sorry, installed file content does not match what was expected

                      for VMware Workstation 6.5.3 /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vmblock.tar file.

                      Your checksum: 583aa0af933d8e4cf33ac3c1aa140d24

                      Expected checksum (64-bit): 08894c1edd8c7c1c45846768102f3700

                      Am I missing something obvious??

                        Looks like the wrong patch.

                          You have wrong MD5 values, in the original files those values are referred to vmware 6.2, you should change them for you 6.3 version..

                           

                          use the md5sum command to caluclate new values and overwrite the old values in the script.
