VMware 6.5.1 in openSUSE 11.1

i knew there are some problems with VMware workstation, and it drove me
that is no problem with installation, but crashed when running.
so i found a script to fix the bug, and it worked fine, would u like to
try it?

just copy and paste in a new file and chmod +x


cd ~
rm -rf vmware-modules
mkdir vmware-modules
cd vmware-modules
find /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source -name “*.tar” -exec tar xf ‘{}’ ;
mkdir -p /lib/modules/uname -r/misc
rm -f /lib/modules/uname -r/misc{vmblock.ko,vmci.ko,vmmon.ko,vmnet.ko,vsock.ko}
cd vmblock-only; make; cd …; cp -p vmblock.o /lib/modules/uname -r/misc/vmblock.ko
cd vmci-only; make; cd …; cp -p vmci.o /lib/modules/uname -r/misc/vmci.ko
cd vmmon-only; make; cd …; cp -p vmmon.o /lib/modules/uname -r/misc/vmmon.ko
cd vmnet-only; make; cd …; cp -p vmnet.o /lib/modules/uname -r/misc/vmnet.ko
#cd vmppuser-only; make; cd …; cp -p vmppuser.o /lib/modules/uname -r/misc/vmppuser.ko
cd vsock-only; make; cd …; cp -p vsock.o /lib/modules/uname -r/misc/vsock.ko
depmod -a
service vmware restart

enjoy it!

thank you this was working fine :).

But still there is a question.
Is there a way to get it running with the xen kernel?

The vmmon module does not get created properly :(.
