KERNEL – 4.5 Final – No Need for -RC8.. — 3 Comments

  1. Hmmmm, I’m currently trying to this compiled given the follow_link to get_link change that I thought happened in the 4.5 merge window. Having found a patch at [1] that seems to sort that, I’m now running into “expression in static assertion is not constant” errors without much luck tracking down an answer. Since your site has usually already solved the problem by the time I get to it, I’m surprised the modules built without problem for you. I’m using the modules source from 12.1.0.3272444. If you’re able to compile that fine for 4.5 are you using an existing patch set (used from a previous kernel) and if so could you please post links to all the patches you apply? Thanks very much!

    • Just another thought.. If you have fuse compiled in the kernel (I have it as a module) VMware 12 will not attempt to compile the vmblock module, and drag-and-drop works OK, using vmblock-fuse..
