Just installed kernel 3.8-rc5 – recently released..
This release has the same dependencies as -rc4, for VMware and NVIDIA..
For VMware, apply Tim’s vmci patch (see previous article for -rc4) and use the softlink:
$ ln -s /usr/src/linux-3.8-rc5/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /usr/src/linux-3.8-rc5/include/linux/version.h
For NVIDIA, use the ‘old’ driver 310.14, as the newer 3.7-compatible drivers still won’t compile with 3.8..
