Well it is the kernel that matters.
Everything works on 5.11 kernel but I have been running on 5.13.15 perfectly.
I have nvidia gpu:s and my status is:
5.13.15 Nvidia dkms version 460 compiles ok and vmware compiles ok.
5.14.2 Had to upgrade Nvidia dkms to ver 470 for compiling ok but vmware fails.
