    [Linux] After upgrading kernel from 2.6.28 (stab) to 2.6.29-rc1 / Vmware compile problem

    mierzenp Novice

      Hi,

       

       

      I know this is Relase Candidate 1 Kernel, but i can't compile vmmon.ko using vmware-config.pl.

      The same config i've used for previus stabile kernel

      OS: Slackware 12.2 @ S5000VSASATA

      VmWare ver: VMware-server-2.0.0-122956.i386.tar.gz

      GCC version 4.2.4

       

      root@server:~# vmware-config.pl

      Making sure services for VMware Server are stopped.

       

      Stopping VMware autostart virtual machines:

         Virtual machines                                       

      Stopping VMware management services:

         VMware Virtual Infrastructure Web Access

         VMware Server Host Agent                               

      Stopping VMware services:

         VMware Authentication Daemon                           

         VM communication interface socket family:              

         Virtual machine communication interface                

         Virtual machine monitor                                

         Bridged networking on /dev/vmnet0                      

         Host network detection                                 

         Bridged networking on /dev/vmnet2                      

         Virtual ethernet                                       

       

      None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server is suitable for your

      running kernel.  Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for

      your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)?

       

      Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

       

      What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running

      kernel?

      /lib/modules/2.6.29-rc1-uniserver-XeonS5000VSA-SATAfix-test/build/include
