VmWare 6.5.5

Well, I finally got round to it & took the plunge. It was actually a breeze.

Just followed the instructions in my previous post

Just made sure that I deleted the 'patched' folder from /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source and then ran - see below for the code.

Also found a bit more to help my mouse. In addition to this post I added an extra line below in italics to the .vmx file :

usb:0.deviceType = "mouse"
usb:0.present = "FALSE"
mouse.vusb.enable = "FALSE"

All seems to work a treat.


Save the following as in /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source

cp -prn /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source-backup
mkdir original
cd original
find /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source -name "*.tar" -exec tar xf '{}' \;
cd ..
cp -pr original/ patched/
patch -p0 <>
cd patched
tar cf vmnet.tar vmnet-only
tar cf vmci.tar vmci-only
cp -p *.tar /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source
vmware-modconfig --console --install-all
