Compile vmware Workstation 7 Kernel 2.6.33 and

My vmware was working great from previous kernels… I updated my sid box to 2.6.33. Once I did that vmware would normally state that it needs to compile some stuff blah blah… With 2.6.33 it could not find some files… it seems like 2.6.33 changes up a little where it places some of the kernel header information.

cd /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.33-2.slh.1-sidux-686/include/linux# ln -s ../generated/utsrelease.h

cd /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.33-2.slh.1-sidux-686/include/linux# ln -s ../generated/autoconf.h .

Once the symbol links were created VOILA…. I’m able to run my vmware with this latest kernel. I got this help from HERE

  1. Does this mean I can use a Linux machine to run games that usually require Windows?
