[EN] VMware, Kernel 3.19 fix
« on: 2015/02/09, 18:30:40 »
Linux Kernel 3.19 requires a fix for the vmnet module source to compile correctly.

Untar /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vmnet.tar, and follow this guidance to fix the source.  Then re-tar vmnet-only into vmnet.tar, and run

Code: [Select]
vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

to compile the modules.  Tested on two systems here.
System76 Oryx Pro, Intel Core i7-11800H, SSD 970 EVO Plus;  Asus ROG STRIX X299-E, Core i7-7740X, Nvidia GTX-1060, dual monitors, SSD 860 EVO
