Hello All,

I'm experimenting with SLC6 under VMWare workstation 6.5.4.
Installation runs OK, but then VMware has this special feature to install a guest OS extension.
This includes kernel modules and at least one of them fails install.

Sorry for the long copy/paste code below.
Does the forum software have a way to simply attach a text file to a post?


Link to the mentioned code.

Mod's edit: please read this topic on how to post large pieces of text/code.

I think your VMware Workstation Version 6.5 is simply too old.
You cannot expect that kernel drivers of vmware tools from 2008 are working for any Linux Kernel in the future.
