Subject: Small fix for VMWare 3.2 (3.x?) on Redhat 9 (any 2.4.20+ kernel?)
Date: Fri, 11 Apr 2003 03:34:45 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <E193vrp-0006P4-00@trillium-hollow.org> (raw)


FYI...

I'm running Redhat 9, and to get my copy of VMWare 3.2 working with it,
I had to make a one-line fix to a source file inside the "vmnet.tar" file
for building the vmnet module.

With the fix, VMWare's scripts throw off a lot of what seem to be
irrelevant error messages while configuring, but it runs flawlessly
once the "vmware-config.pl" script completes.

In the default installation, the source files for the vmnet module are in:

   /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vmnet.tar

Here's the patch:
