Vmware server + Fedora Core 6

VMWware server 1.0.1 build-29996 can not install flawlessly on FC6 with kernel 2.6.19-1.2911.fc6. Need some simple hack.

* Linux kernel version magic dismatch. You will dmesg show your something like “vmmon: version magic ‘2.6.19-1.2911.fc6 SMP mod_unload 686 REGPARM 4KSTACKS ‘ should be ‘2.6.19-1.2911.fc6 SMP mod_unload 586 REGPARM 4KSTACKS “. I modified the include/asm/module.h file, changed #elif defined CONFIG_M686 #define MODULE_PROC_FAMILY “686 ” to “586 ”

* module compilation failure. change vmnet source by following http://www.abclinuxu.cz/blog/tucnacek/2006/12/6/160636. also need to link autoconf.h to config.h under include/linux in kernel source code.

That’s it!
