VMware – 5.8 Fix now merged with 15.5.6 Patchset.. — 8 Comments

  1. Not working here on 5.8.7. modconfig blows up seemingly due /proc/version change and manually compiling/staging vm{mon,net} into modules/misc with a depmod results in reboot when running up a guest via vmrun nogui. Workstation gui frontend segfaults for the apparent same reason modconfig does.

  2. Finding it hard to believe either party wasn’t aware that 5.8 totally reboots systems, unbelievable the product quality of these things. Pinned kernel 5.7 in Arch and never ever ever upgrading the kernel again for the lifetime of this installation. So much for kernel updates not breaking users. Lesson learned. linux & linux-headers are the two packages to add to IgnorePkg in /etc/pacman.conf under Arch or derivatives.

  3. on Fedora fc32 having installed the Kernel 5.8.7
    and booted again into the Kernel 5.8.6
    modconfig aborts with
    [root@s6 #] vmware-modconfig –console –install-all
    [AppLoader] GLib does not have GSettings support.
    Segmentation fault (core dumped)

    before having installed Kernel 5.8.7 modconfig worked ok with the patches
