[EN] VMware vmblock module issue, kernel 3.11
« on: 2013/09/10, 22:05:04 »
The VMware module source needs to be patched to build on kernel 3.11.  If you have already patched for 3.10, then only a single patch is needed. Here is the procedure:

Download the "vmblock.3.11.patch" from here.

In a root terminal, give these commands:

1. cd /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source
2. tar xvf vmblock.tar
3. cd vmblock-only
4. patch -p1 < /path/to/vmblock-3.11.patch
5. cd ..
6. tar cvf vmblock.tar vmblock-only/
7. vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

You should see an error-free completion of the build.
