Fedora 7 Kernel 2.6.22.1-41.fc7 breaks compilation

Hi,

Just apdated my Fedora kernel to 2.6.22.1-41.fc7 from 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 and was (as usual) informed that I needed to rerun vmware-config.pl since the vmware modules were not correct for my new kernel.

Unforunately I got acompile error alraedy in the modules section.

Sifing through the forums, I found a patch for this (http://linux.netmail.ru/vmnet-only-2.6.22.patch.bz). Applying this made the first step (the vmcore modules) compile correctly and load into the kernel.

Unfortunately step 2 (compiling the network modules) spews out warnings and finaly fails.

See attacched output.

I'm not familiar with the support structure of this site -- is there a place to download patches?

Thnx in advance

You have already setup networking.

Would you like to skip networking setup and keep your old settings as they are?

I have dug around more in the forums and googled a bit...

I have downloaded and applied

vmware-any-any-update113 from http://knihovny.cvut.cz/ftp/pub/vmware/ as suggested in the WMPlayer forum: http://vmware.com/coomunity/thread.jspa?messageID=694330.

Now it seems that I can get everyting to compile (a lot of warnings in the core compilation though see attached output).

Is this an official patch? Am I still running a VmWare supported Workstation? Is this even the correct patch to apply?

Rgds

hello,

I have also downloaded and applied vmware-any-any-update113 on my fedora 7 Kernel 2.6.22.1-41...

But It doesn't work.

You are missing gcc-c++ on your host, you will need to install it.

I also downloaded any any update. And it didn't work for me too, but for a different reason.

After extracting the files there is one named runme.pl But in a root terminal I can't get it to run. I checked the permissions and it says it is executable, but no go. What is the correct procedure for installing the any any update patch ?

The any any update looks like very old code. It's says compiling for ESX 2.x or Workstation 4. Do you really think this is an improvement over the e1000 driver that fedora 7 selects by default? I'm having the same compile issues running Fedora 7 32-bit on Workstation 6 with Workstation 6 VM hardware type. Seems to only be having trouble with vmxnet and vmhgfs.

Hej Anders. No, it is not an official patch. Yes, your vmware is still good. Though VMware want make Petr's patch official , they are secretly glad that he has provided it because it fixes a lot of problems and it is in almost universal use.

Except by me on my latest F7 machine. Smiley Sad

kschroed,

The vmware-any-any-update patch is for unSupported Linux HOSTS, not guests.

Old code or not, the only reason to wonder is if the e1000 default isn't doing the job. If something else does, that, by definition, makes it better, even if it is old code.

I have the default in mine, and I'm hoping someone can tell me how to get the old code into it instead.

It looks like this:

\[root@BackupServer vmware-any-any-update113]# runme.pl

-bash: runme.pl: command not found

\[root@BackupServer vmware-any-any-update113]#

So can anyone suggest how to get runme.pl ran ?

Try ./runme.pl

Hey, that worked great. Thanks !

I wonder if putting a dot slash in front of vmware-config.pl would help it.

The patch ran, and vmware-config.pl ran, all the way through this time. It did generate the long list of warnings that Anders got, but I can run my VMs now

Thank you very much Smiley Happy
