VMware issue, kernel 3.10 -- UPDATE 10 JUL 2013
« on: 2013/07/03, 17:06:58 »
There is a problem building the kernel modules on the 3.10 kernel.  I see one patch listed on the vmware forums, but it does not allow all the modules to be built (vmnet is not patched), apparently.  So we are waiting for a complete patch.

Patches have been written for kernel 3.10, and a patching procedure is posted on the Arch VMware wiki.  I have tested the patches and procedure on two 64-bit siduction systems running VMware player 5.02, and the modules build and vmware-player is working as expected.  To simplify the procedure for 3.10 only, I will copy the commands here:

Code: [Select]
$ cd /tmp
$ curl -O http://pkgbuild.com/git/aur-mirror.git/plain/vmware-patch/vmblock-9.0.2-5.0.2-3.10.patch
$ curl -O http://pkgbuild.com/git/aur-mirror.git/plain/vmware-patch/vmnet-9.0.2-5.0.2-3.10.patch
$ cd /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source
# tar -xvf vmblock.tar
# tar -xvf vmnet.tar
# patch -p0 -i /tmp/vmblock-9.0.2-5.0.2-3.10.patch
# patch -p0 -i /tmp/vmnet-9.0.2-5.0.2-3.10.patch
# tar -cf vmblock.tar vmblock-only
# tar -cf vmnet.tar vmnet-only
# rm -r vmblock-only
# rm -r vmnet-only
# vmware-modconfig --console --install-all


Notes:

- 3.10 linux-headers package needs to be installed first
- As root "service vmware stop" first
- note the transition from user prompt to root prompt
