Kernel 2.6.23.9 and vmware-any-any-update115…


Well, I upgraded another of my boxes from 2.6.23.1 to 2.6.23.9. This means it is time to recompile the vmmon and vmnet modules again for the new kernel. I tend to rely on the unofficial any-any-update patches, rather than the vmware installer for more recent kernels. Anyway, so far, everything works fine.

A good place to get the most recent vmware-any-any-update version (currently 115) is HERE. Be sure and cd into the vmware-any-any-update115 folder created after uncompressing the gz tarball, and run the file “runme.pl” from within that directory. I have had problems when running from outside the directory, so better safe than sorry.
