This patch is the 2.6.35 patch plus one more line to make it compile against 2.6.36, where the ioctl field is no longer present in the structures, so we must use the unlocked version. Mind you, as per the comments in the code, the unlocked version will immediately perform the BKL, since the code isn't ready to run outside of the BKL.
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK! If it reformats your drive, steals your identity, corrupts your children, or eats your homework, that's your problem.
maybe, i can help you!
This is that i did
1- i must setup password for root ( sudo passwd root )
2- log off from my user and log on with root
3- open terminal
4- go to /usr/lib/vmware/modules/ and rename the folder "source-backup" (for example: mv source-backup source-backupOLD)
5- go to the folder where you have downloader the files for patch
6- go to super root (? i don't know if is his right name, but i do it!!!) sudo su
my ubuntu is 10.10 64bit with kernel 2.6.36-020636-generic. now, all work great
i hope this is help for you
I found the patch not to work with VMWare Workstation 7.1.3 and Kernel 2.6.36 (on a Gentoo AMD64 box).
As far as I can see, most changes have already been incorporated in the sources, only vmmon needed one last modifacation. I've therefore rediffed for the new version and adjusted the patching script accordingly, both files are attached.
The usual warning applies: Use at your own risk.
Goods for me!
i am ubuntu 10.10 64bit with kernel 2.6.36-020636-generic and VmWare Workstation 7.1.3.
All it's right!
(but, some after problems... i have uninstall wmware
sudo vmware-installer -u vmware-workstation
then i removed old source (because before i used workstation 7.1)
rm -rf /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source*
then install vmware workstation 7.1.3, and apply the patch.
Tnx so much!
