Just updated my main system to kernel 3.8, which has just been released.. For VMware (9.0.1) apply the patch already described in a previous article for the 3.8-rc series, plus the version.h softlink:
# ln -s /usr/src/linux-3.8/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /usr/src/linux-3.8/include/linux/version.h
The latest ‘stable’ NVIDIA driver – 310.32 – compiles OK, with this kernel version..
$ uname -a
Linux rglinux 3.8.0 #1 SMP Tue Feb 19 00:28:44 GMT 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
