VMware 9.0.1 – Not so Clever, After all.. — 11 Comments

      • Thanks! Looks like upgrading my kernel to 3.6.7 and issuing –ignore-errors to the 9.0.1 install worked nicely!

        Now my next issue is that USB doesn’t look to exist anymore… inside the OS it does, but to VMWare no more! If I plug a USB device in, nothing happens…

  1. I can’t find version.h in the location indicated by you on 3.7rc6!
    “ln: failed to create symbolic link `/usr/src/3.7.0-030700rc6-generic/include/linux/version.h’: No such file or directory”

    • The location and softlink info is for the standard source.. You might find your relocated version.h at
      /usr/src/3.7.0-030700rc6/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h.. And.. if you get the softlink parameters the wrong way around, it will fail with a ‘file not found’ error..
      Hope that helps..

  2. If you’re using Arch Linux, ln -s /lib/modules/3.7.0-1-ck/build/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /lib/modules/3.7.0-1-ck/build/include/linux/ (I’m using ck kernel, replace 3.7.0-1-ck with your kernel)

  3. And with debian it’s
    ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-3.7-trunk-amd64/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /usr/src/linux-headers-3.7-trunk-amd64/include/linux/version.h
