VMware – 12.5.3 released – OK with Kernel 4.10. 4.11 Patch Still Works..

VMware 12.5.3 has been released, and release notes are here:  http://pubs.vmware.com/Release_Notes/en/workstation/12pro/workstation-1253-release-notes.html

Although these notes only mention Kernel 4.9.0, I can confirm that it also supports 4.10.x Kernels (tested on 4.10.1).

I applied the vmmon and vmnet patches for Kernel 4.11, mentioned in a previous article, and these still worked, and VMware compiled OK, and ran, on 4.11-rc1..

  1. I can confirm that Mint 18.1 (Ubuntu 16.04) with 4.9 kernel and latest VMware 12.5.4 release works without patching. 🙂

    The same is true for NVIDIA 378.13.

    HTH,
