VMware Player -- fix for kernel 3.4
« on: 2012/05/21, 22:05:22 »
Another kernel version, another VMware compilation issue.  :roll:

As told here, 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.
