VMware modules do not compile with 11.2 M8

I have just updated to 11.2 M8 (from 11.2 M7, by a zypper dup)
and VMware modules do not compile, (though it worked for M7) :

vmware-modconfig --noconcole --install-all
/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.4/cc1: /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libstdc++.so.6/libstdc++.so.6: version GLIBCXX_3.4.11' not found (required by /usr/lib64/libppl_c.so.2) /usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.4/cc1: /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libstdc++.so.6/libstdc++.so.6: version GLIBCXX_3.4.9’ not found (required by /usr/lib64/libppl_c.so.2)
/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.4/cc1: /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libstdc++.so.6/libstdc++.so.6: version GLIBCXX_3.4.11' not found (required by /usr/lib64/libppl.so.7) /usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.4/cc1: /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libstdc++.so.6/libstdc++.so.6: version GLIBCXX_3.4.9’ not found (required by /usr/lib64/libppl.so.7)

addendum : the following libstdc++ are installed on my system (no sign of a 3.4.x !..)

rpm -qa |grep libstdc++

I finally succeeded to compile VMware’s modules by using the script found on this page Build host vmware kernel modules - VI-Toolkit instead of vmware-modconfig.

How did you do that? I’m stuck with the same problem on 11.2 Release.
The script didn’t solve the problem for me :frowning:

I am now using VMware 3.0.0 under opensuse 11.2 and it installed like a charm, without the need for the script.
Sorry for not being to help you more.


vmware-modconfig --noconcole --install-all

Change to:

vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

This is the ONLY way I can get the VWMare Workstation 6.5 modules to compile on my OpenSUSE 11.2 – Trying anything with the VMWare GUI installer causes an error message about not having the proper kernel source, even when I do.

Welcome here

Please start a new thread, instead of using this old one. Be clear in title description etc., state your openSUSE version, kernel version, KDE4/Gnome etc. That will more likely bring a solution for you, than reopening an old post on a Milestone release.
