you must specify the version of vmware.
Which VMware product does this relate to?
Sorry my bad
VMWare workstation 15.5.6 build 16341506 (latest)
Moderator: Thread moved to the Workstation Pro area.
Looks like the issue addressed by this patch: https://github.com/mkubecek/vmware-host-modules/commit/992ae1d5a16e
Some people reported that these objtool warnings may result in failed build on some systems.
Yes that's it. Much thanx. It should be corrected in next build I guess...
Hard to say, the issue has existed since Workstation 15.5.0, i.e. for more than 9 months. But perhaps now when it's not only a warning but a build failure on a released versioned distribution, VMware might finally do something about it.
Guys kindly guide...
- How do i use the Makefile provided by patch at this github link : https://github.com/mkubecek/vmware-host-modules
- Please provide an article or link to some source of steps to follow.
- Currently all i do is run this : vmware-modconfig --console --install-all , And it blows up as described under this issue : VMWare Workstation 15.5.6 , 64 bit, Fedora 31 , Kernel 5.7.7-100.fc31.x86_64 modules fail to compile on kernel upgrade.
I did the following steps to get this to work for me on Fedora 32 workstation.
- Switch to root
- Set VMWare Workstation Pro 15.5.6 to executable - chmod +x VMware-Workstation-Full-15.5.6-16341506.x86_64.bundle
- Launch the VMWare Workstation Pro 15.5.6 installer - ./VMware-Workstation-Full-15.5.6-16341506.x86_64.bundle
- Switch to root
- Downloaded the following release - wget https://github.com/mkubecek/vmware-host-modules/archive/w15.5.6-k5.7.tar.gz
- Extracted the Tarball - tar xvf w15.5.7-k5.7.tar.gz
- In the extracted directory, execute make
- After make finishes, execute make install
- Login as normal user and open up VMWare Workstation Pro
A big thank you to aceman03. His instructions worked like a charm (Linux Kernel 5.7.10), even though I am not on Fedora, but on Artix Linux. Artix is an OpenRC based Linux distribution based on Arch Linux. This shows that there are no specific dependencies on Fedora or systemd, so these instructions should pretty much work for any Linux distro
