Title: VMware Player -- fix for kernel 3.4
Post by: dibl on 2012/05/21, 22:05:22
Another kernel version, another VMware compilation issue.  :roll:

As told here (http://weltall.heliohost.org/wordpress/2012/04/01/vmware-workstation-8-0-2player-4-0-2-and-7-1-x3-1-x-fix-for-linux-kernel-3-4-0/), the fix is easy.

With /usr/lib/vmware/module/source/vmblock.tar extracted, open the file /usr/lib/vmware/module/source/vmblock-only/linux/filesystem.c for editing.  Go to line 528, and change d_alloc_root(rootInode) to read d_make_root(rootInode).

That's it -- re-tar vmblock and the module will build correctly on towo's new kernel.
