Hi,

Did already somebody of you try (and succeed) to install / run vmware
6.5 workstation on a openSUSE 11.1 host?

So far I get:
- installation using RPM works (well, it only installs the bundle and
starts the bundle install... so duh...)
- starting vmware gives a segfault when it tries to startup
-> Modules can't be built

- I extracted all the modules in the modules/source folder, compiled
them all manually... this works, EXCEPT for the module vsock, where I
get 4 warnings and I won't be able to modprobe it later
(The warnings are:
WARNING:
"VMCIDatagram_CreateHnd" [/usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vsock-only/vsock.ko]
undefined!
WARNING:
"VMCIDatagram_DestroyHnd" [/usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vsock-only/vsock.ko]
undefined!
WARNING:
"VMCI_GetContextID" [/usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vsock-only/vsock.ko]
undefined!
WARNING:
"VMCIDatagram_Send" [/usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vsock-only/vsock.ko]
undefined!
)

Anybody of you having more luck with this?

Dominique
