    Workstation pro 12.5.7 for Linux not usable with all the kernel 4.13-rc's

    fulwood_jp Novice

      Hello,

       

      I'm using openSUSE 12.3, and trying to use kernel 4.13-rc7.

      But VMWorkstation 12.5.7 isn't usable with all the kernel 4.13-rc's.

       

      With all the kernel 4.13-rc, wmware-modconfig works well, so I can get vmmon.ko and vmnet.ko.

      But VMware 12.5.7 is not usable;

       

      1. Guest Windows 7, freeze soon after starting.

       

      or

       

      2. When I try to start guest Win 7, I get the message;

       

      "The virtual machine is unable to reserve memory, if selecting Retry does not work, try closing programs

      on the host machine to free first.

       

      Strange! I attached 32GB memory to my machine.

      Moreover, VMWorkstation 12.5.7 works fine with kernel 4.12.

       

      Yes, I know, there exists a patch; VMware-Workstation-12.5.7-kernel4.13-atomic-inc.patch.zip.

      I applied, but it's to no avail.

       

      Could someone help me?

       

      Thanks,
