Thread: Vmware 7.1.5 and SuSE 12.1

    Default Vmware 7.1.5 and SuSE 12.1

    Hi folks,

    I just upgraded to SuSE 12.1 and wanted to re-install Vmware 7.1.5 (I have valid license).
    After using the appropriate patches to the 3.1.0 kernel I started vmware and got:

    Which patches did you apply?

    I'm running 7.1.5 on 12.1 x64 right now and what was posted at:

    http://weltall.heliohost.org/wordpre...for-linux-3-1/

    And that did the trick for me.

    If your license permits maybe you can upgrade to Workstation 8.01. Mind is running fine on OS12.1 64 bit.

    8.0.1 is what's currently supported on the 3.1 kernel (indeed I did get a
    warning that I was running on an unsupported kernel), but unless VMware
    provided some sort of 'upgrade protection' for recent purchases, then a
    7.x license doesn't entitle one to version 8 without paying.

    (And I just missed the window on the 30% sale they were doing... )

    On the flip side, I've started playing around with VirtualBox as well,
    and it's pretty good as well. I never looked at it before because the USB
    2.0 support is an add-on, but I never realized that for personal use,
    it's a free add-on.

    Hi Jim,

    thanks for your hints, but ............... I used, of course, the patch you mentioned.
    I also downloaded the 8.0.1 version, just to see if this one will do the job. But
    unfortunately I got nearly the same vmware behaviour. So I think the problem can
    be an installation one with SuSE 12.1. May be I missed to install a certain package.
    But, which one. May be, the last part of the startup message rings a bell:

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    No value set for `/desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility'

    D-Bus not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Thanks again,

    Uwe.

    That doesn't ring a bell - but have you installed the kernel-devel
    package and associated build tools? (Guessing you have or the patch
    wouldn't have applied, but still worth making sure).

    Are the modules building?

    Hi Jim,

    the kernel-devel package is installed and every package that seems
    to be associated with vmware:

    libvmtools0-8.8.0-2.1.2.x86_64
    libvmtools-devel-8.8.0-2.1.2.x86_64
    yast2-vm-2.21.4-1.1.1.x86_64
    lvm2-2.02.84-19.1.3.x86_64
    vmware-guest-kmp-default-8.8.0_k3.1.0_1.1-2.1.2.x86_64
    open-vm-tools-8.8.0-2.1.2.x86_64
    open-vm-tools-gui-8.8.0-2.1.2.x86_64
    vmware-guest-kmp-desktop-8.8.0_k3.1.0_1.1-2.1.2.x86_64

    The modules have been compiled flawlessly.

    Thanks for looking again,

    Uwe.

    No problem - so when you run vmware in a terminal, what's the complete
    output? Or is it resolved now?

    Hi Jim,

    sorry, it's me again. Just to give you another hint:

    In order to patch the vmware modules, I use the "patch-modules_2.6.39.sh" shell script with
    the "vmware3.1.0.patch" file. It comes from a "fullvmwarelinux310patch.tar.gz" file BUT gives
    warnings like

    " WARNING: Can't read module /lib/modules/3.1.0-1.2-default/weak-updates/updates/vmxnet.ko: No such file or directory"

    And there is indeed no ../weak-updates/updates/vmxnet.ko file. Did I miss something?
    How do you patch vmware v7.1.5?

    Thanks again,

    Uwe.
