Installed Kernel 3.10.1 on my main system, and everything seems to be working OK..
Changelog at: https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v3.x/ChangeLog-3.10.1
VMware 9.02 – with the 3.10 patches for vmnet and vmblock – compiles and runs, and NVIDIA 319.32 – with the 3.10 patch – compiles and runs OK, as well. With 3.10.0, I had problems with sound and the KDE desktop, but everything appears to be working correctly, with 3.10.1..
Incidentally, a repository for VMware patches has been set up by the Arch Linux folks:
This also includes very useful info on other VMware-related issues…
