4.11.7-towo.1 breaks vmware workstation 12.5.5
« on: 2017/06/28, 13:23:56 »
Hello,

today after du (previous kernel 4.11.3-towo.3) I have let vmware workstation run as usual to create its kernel drivers. Here follows the the log of the compile crash.

There was an issue over old 12.1 compiling against 4.9+ kernel which got solved this way running commands as root:

Code: [Select]
cd /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source

tar xf vmmon.tar
tar xf vmnet.tar

mv vmmon.tar vmmon.tar.old
mv vmnet.tar vmnet.tar.old

sed -i 's/uvAddr, numPages, 0, 0/uvAddr, numPages, 0/g' vmmon-only/linux/hostif.c
sed -i 's/addr, 1, 1, 0/addr, 1, 0/g' vmnet-only/userif.c

tar cf vmmon.tar vmmon-only
tar cf vmnet.tar vmnet-only

rm -r vmmon-only vmnet-only

Could it be the case again?
Or what?

It also looks that some are also dealing with the same madness....

Btw, i don't really care about if vmware works or not on our kernels.
Vmware is a premium product and only certifyed for stable distros with stable kernel APIs.

OK I can confirm that 12.5.7 works on 4.11.7-towo.1, reinstallation filled the bill.

I can understand that you might not care, but people running siduction generally like to be bleeding edge on everything and like to be able to run whatever possible... after all, since sidux age, the distro is way more desktop than server oriented, excatly due to frequent du need and availability of latest programs.

Then, of course, I also like more virtualbox, but, unfortunately, sometimes I need the vmware garbage too :(

I ran vmware player on sidux/aptosid/siduction from about 2008 until 2015. During that time, I cannot say how many times the vmware module compiler fell apart under a new kernel. After the "Big Kernel Lock" was dropped, I think it was six months before vmware could compile the needed modules. It seems to be a very brittle code that cannot tolerate much change in the kernel. I am happy to be rid of it, and using qemu/kvm since 2 years to run Win 10 and some unique tools only available for Windows.

Actually, if the aim were just using stuff on a local PC, that could be totally viable.

@melmarker, Dein Englisch ist viel besser als mein Deutsch. 


Possibly, you are searching for our American slang word "ballsy".   ;D
