[SOLVED] Linux Kernel 2.6.32 + Workstation 7

As noted in http://communities.vmware.com/message/1387993#1387993, you will need to make a couple of changes in order to get the modules to compile on the current mainline 2.6.32 kernel.

Attached is a patch and a shell script. WARNING: USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I have neither the time nor inclination to put together a nice robust script. You can always do each of the very few steps by hand.

I would appreciate it if you could create a patch for Workstation 6.5.4 as well...

Hi,

I installed workstation 7 on linux kernel 2.6.32 (cent OS 6) . I started installing VM, when I clicked inside VM, mouse and keyboard is not working at all.

Now I am not able to install VM as mouse/keyboard inputs are essential for installing VM.  Please help me here.

If there is any patch available to enable mouse , keyboard , let me know.
