    Default VMware 7 on opensuse 12.3

    Everything worked ok up to compiling.
    I then get a message that compiling failed.
    Log message :
    Code:
    HEADER_DIR=/lib/modules/3.7.10-1.1-desktop/build/include CC=/usr/bin/gcc 
    GREP=/usr/bin/make IS_GCC_3=no VMCCVER=4.7
    
     Mar 27 12:03:14.080: app-140105499895552| Failed to compile module vmmon!
    So to me this looks like it is looking for GCC3 (not 4.7)
    Is there any way around this ?

    Cool Re: VMware 7 on opensuse 12.3

    Alastairo,

    You could check out our ramblings on our WebSite at:
    SuSE 12.3

    -Or- you could take the short cut and check out Larry Finger's fix. Basically, the version.h is not in the 'correct' location again, or at least NOT where VMware is looking for it. Larry's fix is a link to the version.h in another location. An extract from our Web Page:

    We need to make the little alteration in the source files... this is courtesy of Larry Finger @ Index of /nvidia_patches

    Code:
      cd /lib/modules/3.7.10-1.1-desktop/build/include/ (numb in red could be different)
      ln -s generated/uapi/linux
      'ls linux' should show version.h
    We are using VMware version 8 -but- we do believe that the 'fix' will work for your version 7 also. Give us -or- Larry another holler IF you are still having problems. We really like VMware and want it to succeed in all cases.

    Take care and have fun,
    Chuck
