VMWare 5.5 Workstation on 11.1

Has anyone gotten VMWare Workstation v5.5 to load as host into openSuSE

The 5.5 version of Workstation released last month (v5.5.9-126128)
worked fine on 11.0 after doing the “cd /usr/src/linux”, " make
mrproper", “make cloneconfig”, “make modules_prepare”, and then running
the vmware-any-any-update117 perl script.

TIA for all rendered wisdom.

At this moment I would say it’s a no go with the 5.5 version and the
kernel in openSUSE 11.1.
Even the 6.0 release is giving problems as also VMServer 1.0.
See this post : ‘VMware Server 1.0.8 on openSUSE 11.1 - openSUSE
Forums’ (http://tinyurl.com/7ucors)

VMWare workstation 6.5.1 is running perfectly here though…

VMWare might posts a new version that runs on the newer kernels, but
haven’t been following 5.5 development for a while now.


Have a lot of fun! WJM

VMware 5.5 does work on openSuSE 11.1. I have it installed and it works
fine under KDE3. However, under KDE4 I am having trouble getting the
sound to work. The fix I found was/is from Kang at ‘insecure’
(http://www.insecure.ws/) The file is:
Everything works in KDE3 Just have to find a fix for sound in VMware /
KDE4. You could follow my WebPage at;
and when there is a fix it will be posted.:nerd:
