After over three years of the 5.x kernel series, 6.0-rc1 has been released, and brief details are here: https://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/2208.1/06638.html
With the latest version of the 16.2.4 patchset (updated a few days ago..) VMware compiles and loads/runs OK.. https://github.com/mkubecek/vmware-host-modules/tree/workstation-16.2.4
NVIDIA 515.65.01 – with the one-line hack mentioned in the previous article – compiles and runs OK.. (YMMV – Use at your own risk!) https://rglinuxtech.com/?p=3053
