vsock compile error. Troubleshoote: VMware Workstation 7.1 to cooperate with Linux kernel 2.6.35 Please fix page [sorry, my english very poor for it]


as posted in the archlinux forum, this script should fix vmware kernel modules for linux kernel 2.6.36 + vmware workstation 7.1.x .. I continue an issue though => 'Virtual ethernet' module fails to load so I am still looking for a solution there

Starting VMware services:
  VMware USB Arbitrator                                               done
  Virtual machine monitor                                             done
  Virtual machine communication interface                             done
  VM communication interface socket family                            done
  Blocking file system                                                done
  Virtual ethernet                                                   failed
Unable to start services

ahh, correction - things are working great now. the fix was to uninstall/reinstall VMware workstation, then run the script, which I did as follows ::
# vmware-installer --uninstall-component=vmware-workstation

# wget http://communities.vmware.com/servlet/JiveServlet/download/1650169-45603/vmmon_fix_2.6.36.sh

# sh ./vmmon_fix_2.6.36.sh

vmware workstation 7.1.3-x + archlinux kernel 2.6.37 using vmware-7.1.3-2.6.37-9-generic.patch and patch-modules_v62.sh ... just had to change one line in the file patch-modules_v62.sh :: changed this original line

fpatch=vmware-7.1.3-2.6.37-2-generic.patch

change TO

fpatch=vmware-7.1.3-2.6.37-9-generic.patch

copy both files to /tmp then run the following ::

chmod +x patch-modules_v62.sh 
sudo ./patch-modules_v62.sh

works for me! --Fnord0 06:57, 31 January 2011 (EST) --Fnord0 17:40, 16 December 2010 (EST)
