Hello all

VMware has been working great but running "zypper dup" last night (the 5th of Oct)
installed kernel 4.2.1-1. As a result I was no longer able to manually recompile the VMware
Workstation "vmnet" module without errors:
Ex. Error 1: No Internet connection
Ex. Error 2: The status of the "Virtual ethernet" was "failed"
Ex. Error 3: Virtual ethernet failed kernel-source-4.2.1
/usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vmnet-only/bridge.o' failed
For more info concerning the exact error messages when compiling, see "ORIGINAL
ERROR MESSAGES" at the end of this email

Note : Before the update I was on kernel 4.1.6-3.2

i updated vmware to latest version and compiled vmnet ansd vmmon modules manually.
