    Problem Installing into Ubuntu 8.04 RC Hardy Heron

      I was running the install when this popped up. I am not sure what to do, at this point.

       

       

      Thanks.

          VMWare 6 and Ubuntu Hardy: vmmon compile error

           

          Just a quick post to documentate how eitch got his VMWare config to work:

           

           

          Problem: include/asm/bitops_32.h:9:2: error: #error only <linux/bitops.h> can be included directly, and vmmon-only compile failes

           

           

          Solution: change line 74 in vmmon-only source file to read: #include “linux/bitops.h”

           

           

          Steps:

           

          1. cd /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source

          2. cp vmmon.tar vmmon.tar.orig

          3. sudo tar xvf vmmon.tar

          4. cd vmmon-only/include/

          5. sudo vi vcpuset.h

          6. change line 74 from: #include “asm/bitops.h” to: #include “linux/bitops.h”

          7. rm vmmon.tar (return to the folder where you decompressed the tar file)

          8. sudo tar cvf vmmon.tar vmmon-only/

          9. sudo rm -rf vmmon-only/

          10. sudo vmware-config.pl

           

          That’s it, the compile will work now and vmware should be usable as normal
