Does this get copy/pate support working?

I also could not (still can not) compile the correct Vmware tools and when I
filed a bug (https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=802058) I was told
the issue is vmware and not the packages.

Has the "linux/version.h" changed directories
Yes it did change location. But - every PROPER kernel module source
compiles as it did before. And compared to the Nvidia source crap,
VMware is actually passable. Well, that is an understatement: the
vmware modules, they need no fiddling at all.

If you do however get some version.h related error notice even if you
have made sure you have the kernel-devel packages (it looks like you
do), it must be some kind of higher-level program that tells you about
it, because the compile procedure itself works flawlessy:

I use vmware player. There I need the following trick to get vmware
modules
compiled:

cd /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include ln -s generated/uapi/linux .

And then when I start vmware player, it will correctly find
linux/version.h and
compile the kernel modules.
