VMWare server 1.05 and kernel v2.6.25

May 4th, 2008 Blog 0 Comments

I recently upgraded my kernel from to In trying to rebuild vmware server against the new kernel, i came up with a few issues.

A bit of digging uncovered this: http://lenrek.wordpress.com/2008/04/24/vmware-105-and-kernel-2625/. It got me up and running quite nicely.

Small point to note – i used to apply the vmware-any-any-update-116 patch and then run /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl. Patches for the 2.6.25 kernel do not apply to a patched vmware-server install. i ran without the any-any patch and all worked fine nonetheless.

Finally, as i normally do i executed the following to ensure correct operation of the console:

cd /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libpng12.so.0
mv libpng12.so.0 libpng12.so.0.old
ln -sf /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0 libpng12.so.0
cd /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libgcc_s.so.1
mv libgcc_s.so.1 libgcc_s.so.1.old
ln -sf /lib/libgcc_s.so.1
