Worked for me without patching
I used player v5.0.1 and was at kernel v3.6.11. I tried first following the instructions here and just munged up the installation. Tried with a fresh .bundle install and all was well. Greymalkin (talk) 07:48, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
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)
This section needs a much better explanation, especially considering that those long perl commands don't even work.
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)
