- I don't know if it is relevant to even mention a kernel in the testing repo, but the fix for Kernel 2.6.33 "Compile Modules Problem" fixes a compile problem for Kernel 2.6.34 using VMware 7.x.x.  This is my very first wiki, so please excuse me if I lack any etiquette. --[[User:5arge|5arge]] 23:20, 14 June 2010 (EDT)

:- There's absolutely no necessarity to apologize the use of the discussion page but with VMware 7.1.0 build-261024 and the 2.6.34-2 kernel/-headers from [core] I have no such compile problems. --[[User:Det|Det]] 08:43, 28 June 2010 (EDT)

I'm going to merge in [[Installing VMware Player]] to it's own section here, the AUR packages are gone, but I don't just want to delete it all without replacing the outdated info (most of the info can probably be deleted though) [[User:Thestinger|Thestinger]] 10:26, 2 July 2010 (EDT)

DKMS

Is the section about using DKMS to compile the kernel modules still valid? There is open-vm-tools-dkms in the community repository which seems to be the same thing. I don't know how to use DKMS yet so it would be nice if someone with experience on using DKMS could update the corresponding section. --BertiBoeller (talk) 11:33, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

Configuration

This section needs a much better explanation, especially considering that those long perl commands don't even work.
