i need a patch for vmware player v 3.0.0 witch was packed in vmware workstation 7.
for 188.8.131.52-127.fc12.x86_64 fedora core 12
whit fedora core 11 vmware was working great.
but whit fedora core 12 the player starts.. stands there 1 seccond and crashes.
my workstation is working great on fedora core 12 that was released today.
for this guy snowder try# sudo vmware-modconfig --console --install-all
and?? where is the vmware.log in vmware workstation 7??
o.k. I've loked myself and found that funcion "filterIoctlSem" in /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vmnet-only/filter.c could not be included so i searched for this function in the kernelsourcetree... but no includefile declares this function.
any help ?
@snowder, do you mind posting the hacked patch? I'm also unable to build the modules against 2.6.31-9-rt, it would be much apreciated - and save me a lot of hair pulling since I've been on this for 3 days...

well here you are ...
(the patch isn`t my work hornur to sombody else , I just made the poor sript to use it with vmware 7 )
as root: copy the 2 files to /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source
execute the script: sh ./applypatch and then reconfigure vmware
btw. i had problems when starting vmplayer (vmware) as normal usr. As
root it works very well for me.
a workaround is to start vmplayer or vmware directly from
Hi, snowder, thank you for posting.
I managed to solve it this morning, tho, by editing the
source files directly and changing the MUTEX definition for the
SEMAPHORE in each driver, following the 2.6.31 patch.
This is not over yet, there's no official support and I
couldn't find anything, nowhere within the communities there's a
prepared patch for the 2.6.31-rt kernel, so your posting it's all
there is till something else comes along.
*Anyone trying to use Vmware Player 3 or Vmware Workstation 7 on
Ubuntu Studio 9.10 or any 2.6.31 real time (rt) kernel, please follow
the instructions provided by snowder on the post above to get it
Kudos for you, dude.
