Re: VMWare on current kernels (was: debian rocks!)

Take a look here:


Essentially, vmware in its raw state doesn't compile with relatively newer kernels. You need patches to make them work. You can find these patches at http://platan.vc.cvut.cz/ftp/pub/vmware .

Once you download and tgunzip them you will simply run the installer from there.

Good luck.

 i have been stuck to kernel 2.6.18-1-686 for the very same reason.... and
not upgrading have searched a bit but to no avail.

I had this problem as well.  And as a pointer, I could get the latest
vmware-player to work, where the old vmware-workstation that I had did

I was trying with the vmware server. Anybody has a suggestion?
I have both kernel sources and headers installed.
