Has anybody tried the script I uploaded in a previous post. It was apparently made for openSUSE but in my case worked perfeectlyto bypass the hideous "cannot determine gcc information" problem. My kernel was 22.214.171.124 on Debian Sid using gcc 6.4
gcc.sh 1.4 K
I tried. I had to. For my work as a text editor, I want to use the same software like my customers do for the texts they send me. Most of them still use the MS Office thing. So I must have a reliable Windows installed in a vm.
I runned your script, but no cigar: [Bash] gcc-mfelker.log - Pastebin.com
(Using: gcc (SUSE Linux) 4.8.5, kernel 4.4.79-19-default)
I use your patch in both VMware workstation
and they work great. I did uninstall of 12.0.1 and then install the 12.5.7. I am not sure if you use the automatic upgrade if you have to reinstall or not the modules, most likely you do.
VIELEN DANK Hendrik!
Hendrik's patch works very well and vmware starts and can be used locally.
It still crashes when accessing a shared VM on a server, vmware simply exits with error.
This can be solved by:
Looks like Opensuse and vmware should get in contact and fix some issues since the shared lib bug is quite old and still existing.
I had the same failure to compile issue with
openSUSE Leap 42.3 running Kernel 4.4.87-25-default
Using your offered patched modules I successfully compiled
VMware Workstation 12 Pro - Ver 12.5.7, build 5813279
Thank you for your work on this issue,
This fix worked for me. OpenSUSE Leap 42.3 kernel 4.4.104-39-default with Vmware Workstation 12.5.7.
Patch dose not work with Leap 42.3 Kernel 4.4.104-39-default and VMware 12.5.9 build-7535481
It compiles ok then when trying to launch guest OS, which is windows 7, it fails to launch and returns
"Version mismatch with vmmon module: expecting 309.0, got 308.0.
You have an incorrect version of the 'vmmon' kernel module.
Try reinstalling VMware Workstation."
Thank you very much for the contribution hendrikw84, the patch ws 12.5.9 has worked correctly in a kernel 4.4.155-68-default in opensuse leap 42.3, I have been able to recover my virtual windows 10 machine after an update of leap 42.2 to leap 42.3.
It should also be noted in the forum that the Vmware Workstation 14.0 does not work with microprocessors icore 5.
A cordial greeting.
