VMware Tools Compile Problem

exiledpoacher Novice

I am running Ubuntu 13.10 (beta) with Linux Kernel 3.11.0-7 as a Guest OS under VMware Fusion 6.0.0 (1296151) on my Macbook (Mac OS X 10.8.4).

I attempted to install VMware Tools 9.6.0 Build-1294478 and got the following errors during the shared folder configuration compile.


  CC [M]  /tmp/modconfig-j0IFhU/vmhgfs-only/inode.o

/tmp/modconfig-j0IFhU/vmhgfs-only/inode.c: In function ‘HgfsPermission’:

/tmp/modconfig-j0IFhU/vmhgfs-only/inode.c:1893:29: error: ‘struct dentry’ has no member named ‘d_count’

          int dcount = dentry->d_count;


make[2]: *** [/tmp/modconfig-j0IFhU/vmhgfs-only/inode.o] Error 1

make[1]: *** [_module_/tmp/modconfig-j0IFhU/vmhgfs-only] Error 2

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.11.0-5-generic'

make: *** [vmhgfs.ko] Error 2

make: Leaving directory `/tmp/modconfig-j0IFhU/vmhgfs-only'


I realise that Ubuntu and the Kernel are not finalised but didn't see this problem until Ubuntu Update-Manager installed the 3.11 Kernel series. Any ideas how to overcome this issue appreciated.
