Please how-to apply this patch ?
You would do more or less the following commands.
tar -xf vmci.tar
patch -p1 < 'patchfile'
tar -cf vmci.tar vmci-only/
then re-run vmware installer.
I thank you very much !
It works with 3.8-rc6 too
Well, it works with 3.8-rc6, but Workstation is sooooo slow
Any idea to make it give its best ?
The same patch is needed for WS8.x and Kernel 3.8.x. It applies with small offsets.
Thanks a lot
Thank you for helping--I did the manual patches for 3.8.0 and it works great
Thanks, now VMware Player 5.0.1 on Fedora 18 x86_64 compiled with 3.8.1-201.fc18 kernel.
I also confiirm the patch works on 3.8.1-201.fc18.x86_64. Thanks.
Does this patch also work for Ubuntu and (much less likley) openSUSE with kernel 3.8.x? Has anybody t ried it??
It should work on any distro that has a 3.8 kernel. Certainly works on Ubuntu Raring.
I am not able to understand the commands given to install this new patch. Please post step by step instructions on how to install patch. I am a novice trying to learn.
I apply this patch but when I start vmware: Could not open /dev/vmmon.
3.8.0-9-generic #18-Ubuntu SMP Thu Feb 28 17:02:06 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
lgraves read third post.
Igraves press ctrl+alt+t write sudo su press enter end write password and press enter. Now you write command with post third.
Sorry for my english.
Ok. I solved my problem:
vmware-modconfig --console --install-all --appname="VMware Player" --icon="vmware-player"
Everything work fine.
Actually I just installed WS 9.0.2-1031769 on FC 18 (fully distro-synced) using kernel 3.8.3-203.fc18.x86_64 WITHOUT any patch.
It seems like VMware has at long last gotten its Linux kernel compatibility right. The poster that said the new release works with all the new kernels was correct!
But theres alway more work to do - you guys can come out with a patch for kernel 3.9 (although perhaps that works out of the box aswell - haven't tried it).
Good job patchers and VMware!!
PS I'm downoading Linux Mint 14 Debian Edtion right now and will edit this reply again if I have a problem with creaating a VM.
