Thread: VMworkstation 6.5.3 cannot start

  1. #1

    Default VMworkstation 6.5.3 cannot start

    I got issue to run VMWorkstation 6.5.3 on OpenSuse 11.2.

    My current running kernel
    linux-6hjz:/ # uname -r
    2.6.31.5-0.1-desktop

    Follow the guide from Setting up VMware Workstation - openSUSE.

    When I running this:

    linux-6hjz:/home/fer/Desktop # vmware-modconfig --console --install-all
    gcc and kernel headers must be installed

    Check
    linux-6hjz:/home/fer/Desktop # rpm -qa | grep kernel
    kernel-debug-devel-2.6.31.12-0.2.1.i586
    kernel-desktop-devel-2.6.31.12-0.2.1.i586
    kernel-firmware-20090821-4.1.noarch
    kernel-default-devel-2.6.31.12-0.2.1.i586
    kernel-syms-2.6.31.12-0.2.1.i586
    kernel-pae-devel-2.6.31.12-0.2.1.i586
    linux-kernel-headers-2.6.31-3.4.noarch
    kernel-source-2.6.31.12-0.2.1.noarch
    kernel-desktop-2.6.31.5-0.1.1.i586
    kernel-xen-devel-2.6.31.12-0.2.1.i586

    linux-6hjz:/home/fer/Desktop # rpm -qa | grep gcc
    libgcc44-4.4.1_20090817-2.3.4.i586
    gcc-c++-4.4-4.2.i586
    libstlport_gcc4-4.6.2-3.1.i586
    gcc44-c++-4.4.1_20090817-2.3.4.i586
    gcc-4.4-4.2.i586
    gcc44-info-4.4.1_20090817-2.3.4.i586
    gcc-info-4.4-4.2.i586
    gcc44-4.4.1_20090817-2.3.4.i586

    Would anyone please advise which step i did it wrong? Thank you in advance.

    issue resolve. Not sure what had I done but I did "zypper up" yesterday and reboot.

    then

    mv /usr/lib/vmware/modules/binary /usr/lib/vmware/modules/binary_old
    vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

    and this time able to complile.
