    Default vmware on 11.3

    I used swerdna's tutorial for installing vmware server on 11.2 - only I was trying it on 11.3. and then tried the fix script which gave this output: (This is the part where it crashed)



    I need some help to identify the problem

    Hi
    The kernel links have changed. Run the following commands as root and then retry your patch;
    Code:
    cd /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include/linux
    ln -s ../generated/autoconf.h
    ln -s ../generated/utsrelease.h

    Hi
    Have you done a md5sum check on your source download? Else I would remove that source-backup directory and try again.

    I will remove the source backup and try again - but I am not too sure where to look for it - and don't want to mess up the system.
    Please guide me!

    Did that and ran the script again - got the same result:

    Code:
    Untarring vsock-temp.tar
    Sorry, vsock-temp.tar tarball failed to extract the directory vsock-temp-only
    I will have to continue tomorrow - thanks for your help

    Hi
    Well it might pay to delete the whole backup directory then;
    Code:
    cd /usr/lib/vmware/modules/
    pwd
    rm -rf source-backup
    cd
    Did you check the md5sum of the download?

    Hi malcolmlewis,

    Thanks a lot for all the info you have provided here.
    I have also followed the same steps but unfortunately got the same error message while running the following command:

    #./vmware-server.2.0.1_x64-modules-2.6.30.4-fix.sh

    ------------
    Untarring vsock-temp.tar
    Sorry, vsock-temp.tar tarball failed to extract the directory
    vsock-temp-only
    -------------

    Thanks, in advance.
