VMware – 14.1.1 released – OK with Kernel 4.15..

As expected, there is a new release of VMware – 14.1.1 – and brief details are here:  https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Workstation-Pro/14/rn/workstation-1411-release-notes.html

This version compiles and loads OK with the latest 4.15-rc kernel – tested with 4.15-rc7, and no longer needs the vmmon series of patches.

VMware – 14.1.1 released – OK with Kernel 4.15.. — 1 Comment

  1. Fedora 27 / kernel 4.14.11-300.fc27.x86_64 / VMware WS 14.1.1 build is failing with:

    make[1]: Entering directory ‘/usr/src/kernels/4.14.11-300.fc27.x86_64’
    Makefile:946: *** “Cannot generate ORC metadata for CONFIG_UNWINDER_ORC=y, please install libelf-dev, libelf-devel or elfutils-libelf-devel”. Stop.
    make[1]: Leaving directory ‘/usr/src/kernels/4.14.11-300.fc27.x86_64’

    There is missing dependency. Just install :

    # dnf install elfutils-libelf-devel elfutils-libelf-devel-static

    and start

    # vmware &
