    vmhgfs module fails to build on Scientific Linux (RHEL) 7.4

    pkMyt1 Lurker

      I think this error is coming from gcc.  All the other tools build but vmhgfs, the one I really need because I need to mount shared drives.  This is most current Workstation Player using Windows 10 as a host.  The error is

       

      make: Entering directory `/tmp/modconfig-ikVWNv/vmhgfs-only'

      /bin/make -C /lib/modules/3.10.0-693.21.1.el7.x86_64/build/include/.. SUBDIRS=$PWD SRCROOT=$PWD/. \

        MODULEBUILDDIR= modules

      make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/3.10.0-693.21.1.el7.x86_64'

      arch/x86/Makefile:166: *** CONFIG_RETPOLINE=y, but not supported by the compiler. Toolchain update recommended..  Stop.

      make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/3.10.0-693.21.1.el7.x86_64'

      make: *** [vmhgfs.ko] Error 2

      make: Leaving directory `/tmp/modconfig-ikVWNv/vmhgfs-only'

       

      Anyone have any ideas?  I am using this gcc.  I have been avoiding attempting to build a newer version.

       

      Using built-in specs.
