Here is patch for 2.6.30 kernel for Workstation 6.5.2

By popular demand, here is an update of my original patch. It now works on 2.6.30 (I tested on 2.6.30-rc4). I'm using VMware Workstation 6.5.2.

This patch runs exactly the same as my earlier 2.6.29 patch script, which was here:

http://communities.vmware.com//thread/203231

The instructions are exactly the same as before. Download the patch, and also, download the script to help you apply it. There should be 2 attachments to this message.

Use the bash command to run the script, as root. (Look at the script first, so you know I didn't put something nasty in it!):

bash ./vmware-6.5.2-modules-2.6.30-fix.sh

It should now apply cleanly, and there should be no errors.

If there were errors, please restore your original VMware modules from backup. If you earlier tried the 2.6.29 patch script, and it failed because you're running the 2.6.30 kernel, then you'll need to undo my previous patch before trying this patch. Here's the command that will restore your earlier VMware modules:

cp -v /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source-backup/* /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source

This will restore your modules to their earlier pristine condition (hopefully), and you can now try again to run the 2.6.30 script.

I tried this and it works to run my virtual machines under 2.6.30. There are very few changes between 2.6.29 and 2.6.30 from VMware's point of view, which makes it minimally invasive. Let me know how this works.

Hi,

Thanks for your patch (are the previous one) which once again made VMware work for me.

The only glitch I had is that had to delete the following hunk from the patchfile in order to apply it cleanly to my VMware module source.

vmware-6.5.2-modules-2.6.30-fix.patch line 58:

I found no APIC_BASE_MSR in my unpatched module sources.

Once these lines are deleted the patch applies (although with some offset on the line numbers) and the modules compile and run correctly. I'm running VMware Workstation 6.5.2 build-156735 on a Linux kernel 2.6.30-020630rc4-generic.

Thanks. Interesting. APIC_BASE_MSR doesn't exist anymore in Workstation 6.5.2, you're right. I thought I had already deleted it from the patch. Good catch.

And I see other body had wrote its, but I don't get any answer yet. Can you show me the solve of it ?

I use WMware-workstation6.5.2 and linux kernel 2.6.30-5-generic

Hi,

eris23 and s8dragon, please try the attached patch, it's a modified version of vmware-6.5.2-modules-2.6.30-fix.patch. You still have to use the original vmware-6.5.2-modules-2.6.30-fix.sh and don't forget to first revert your module sources before applying the patch.

Krellan's message gives the necessary instructions for reverting the sources.

Hi s8dragon !

May be you can help me ... I was happy with my vmware-server 1.0.9 working perfectly, remotly and localy ...;-)

I'm an old devlopper (>59years old) who is always astonished by the "Why to make it simple when you can complixify !" of today....

(I speak about the number of different products of VMware ... not really clearly described in simple terms .. )

Mandriva decided to be on the very edge of kernels so ... I am stuck for days with the bloody patches for 2.6.29xxx from everywhere which remedy

the compiler problems BUT ... ends with the bloody 138 iso 208 ... bad version of vmmon.o ...

What to do ?

Best regards.

(It seems thar vmware people don't care about these problems.)

P.S.

Do I missed something, because apparently VMware Workstation is as VMware Player ... unable to run a VM on another host !!??

Do you run VMware Workstation 6.5.2 on linux 2.26.29? try the patch of Krelland (It's in ).

Or not, please post your errors and version of VMware to someone can be help you.

simmo: What version of VMware Workstation are you running? What Linux distribution is your host running? What's your Linux kernel version (use this command: uname -a)?

It looks like you tried to patch something that was different from what was expected.

Also, try using farzy's patch (scroll back up to find his reply, then download the patch from there).

I suggest you uninstall and then reinstall VMware Workstation, then apply farzy's patch.

I'm not sure how you guys do this stuff, or figure this out, but I'm extremely grateful!!

I commented-out the same lines and got it working with the patch on ubuntu x86_64 2.6.30 .

Everything else compiled perfectly except vmblock, so taking these lines out allowed me to install the patch.

THANK YOU!!!

Done!

I have changed the files in here:

/usr/lib/vmware/modules/source

I have placed a backup of the original files in here:

/usr/lib/vmware/modules/source-backup

The original VMware modules directory is still in the way.

Please move this directory somewhere else, because it confuses VMware:

/usr/lib/vmware/modules/binary

This command should work now, to install the modules:

vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

I can confirm that the patch works fine for vmware-player as well.

I unpacked the tarfiles from the vmware-player module sources, applied the patch with a patchlevel of p1 (as the topdir names are different from the names in vmware-workstation)

patch -p1 < /tmp/vmware-6.5.2-modules-2.6.30-fix.patch

cd vmblock-only

make

etc.

Thanks for making this patch available !

Sorry, problem compiling the vmmon module after it was patched

---

Trouble was that I ran 'make clean' in kernel tree after I built it few days ago, and forgot about it.

It seems that 'make clean' removes bounds.h from include/linux, which is needed during the build

of the vmmon module.I ran 'make prepare' in kernel tree, and it regenerated needed headers.

Then smooth sail from that point on-'sh vmware-6.5.2-modules-2.6.30-fix.sh', and then 'vmware-modconfig --console --install-all' All is fine Smiley Happy

Big thanks to Krellan and farzy (whose modified patch I used.)

You guys are awesome Smiley Happy
