    Default VMware Server 1.0.7 - compile errors on vmware-config-tools

    Hi all,

    yes, I searched all the threads around VMware issues on OpenSUSE 11 - still I did not succeed.

    I tried it with the OpenSUSE 11 open-vm package and with the VMware supplied tar-file. In any case I am running into the following compile errors:

    make: Entering directory `/tmp/vmware-config7/vmhgfs-only'
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.25.5-1.1-pae/build/include/.. SUBDIRS=$PWD SRCROOT=$PWD/. modules
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.25.5-1.1-obj/i386/pae'
    make -C /usr/src/linux-2.6.25.5-1.1 O=/usr/src/linux-2.6.25.5-1.1-obj/i386/pae/. modules

    Any hints are appreciated!

    Hannes,

    not exactly sure where the problem is. You have VMWare Server 1.0.7, Opensuse 11 as a guest, and now you want to install the VMWare Tools in the Opensuse 11 guest?

    Correct.

    The problem is the type conflict with uintptr_t. I tried to resolve it, but on checking the C sources more and more issues revealed.

    Best regards

    AFAIK vmhgfs is used for shared folders and is not a requirement of vmware tools. Tools runs fine without it.

    Shared folders are not supported on vmware server.

    Yeps, but this image has to be shared with users who do have VM Workstation - so installing vmware-tools would be a benefit...

    Let me check, I need to install an Opensuse 11 guest first.

    Uwe,

    first thank you for the hint!

    However, I do not see so. It is a problem with a duplicate definition of uintptr_t (and others), but not i_blksize. I tried to fix it, but after 2 hours rearranging #defines I left it alone. Currently I am suspecting that kernel headers do not match - allthough they all are installed directly from the distribution.

    Have a nice weekend

    Hannes
