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)

Instability

Anyone else experienced random kernel crashes when shutting down a VM? The stack trace always mentions XFS(which I use), but is never consistent. I'm on 9.0.0. Going to try upgrading to 9.0.1 to see if that helps it. --Earlz (talk) 23:03, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

I get compiler errors when compiling the kernel modules. This appears to be the fix: http://mysticalzero.blogspot.dk/2013/07/vmblock-patch-for-linux-311-rc1-vmware.html --Earlz (talk) 14:15, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
