    Default VMware 6.5.1 in openSUSE 11.1

    i knew there are some problems with VMware workstation, and it drove me crazy.
    that is no problem with installation, but crashed when running.
    so i found a script to fix the bug, and it worked fine, would u like to try it?

    just copy and paste in a new file and chmod +x


    cd ~
    rm -rf vmware-modules
    mkdir vmware-modules
    cd vmware-modules
    find /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source -name "*.tar" -exec tar xf '{}' \;
    mkdir -p /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc
    rm -f /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc{vmblock.ko,vmci.ko,vmmon.ko,vmnet.ko,vsock.ko}
    cd vmblock-only; make; cd ..; cp -p vmblock.o /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc/vmblock.ko
    cd vmci-only; make; cd ..; cp -p vmci.o /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc/vmci.ko
    cd vmmon-only; make; cd ..; cp -p vmmon.o /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc/vmmon.ko
    cd vmnet-only; make; cd ..; cp -p vmnet.o /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc/vmnet.ko
    #cd vmppuser-only; make; cd ..; cp -p vmppuser.o /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc/vmppuser.ko
    cd vsock-only; make; cd ..; cp -p vsock.o /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc/vsock.ko
    depmod -a
    service vmware restart

    enjoy it!

    thank you this was working fine .

    But still there is a question.
    Is there a way to get it running with the xen kernel?

    The vmmon module does not get created properly .
