Kernel – 4.13-rc2 out – Still OK with Latest VMware (patched) and NVIDIA..

Kernel 4.13-rc2 has been released, and brief details of changes from -rc1 are here:  http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1707.2/06568.html

It used to be that if things were OK with the initial -rc version of the kernel, then all subsequent -rc versions were also OK, but in recent times, this has not always been the case..

I have quickly tested this with the latest NVIDIA (384.47) and VMware (12.5.7 with patched vmnet) and everything still works – the same as with -rc1..

  1. With that patch it compiles ok, but i can’t run any VM, since it complains about “>Cannot allocate memory”.
    With Kernel 4.12.6, all is running fine.
