How-to Install VMware Player / Workstation on 2.6.24 Kernel

Saturday, February 2nd, 2008

Update: If you are looking for patching VMware for Linux 2.6.25 Kernel – check here

Currently latest VMware Player and Workstation do not install under Linux 2.6.24 Kernel. This is a short how-to resolve the gcc/make errors that arise while configuring (vmware-configure.pl)

1. Download the latest vmware player (workstation) – currently VMware Player 2.0.2 Build 59824
url: http://www.vmware.com/download/player/ – Read the Eula before downloading

2. tar xzvf VMware-player-2.0.2-59824.i386.tar.gz

3. cd vmware-player-distrib/

4. ./vmware-install.pl – Proceed as usual when asked to run vmware-config.pl answer NO

5. Download the latest any-any patch – currently vmware-any-any-update-116
url: http://vm…s.googlegroups.com/web/vmware-any-any-update-116.tgz

6. tar xzvf vmware-any-any-update-116.tgz

7. cd vmware-any-any-update116

8. ./runme.pl and when asked to run vmware-config.pl answer YES

9. Configure as usual

10. Enjoy!

PS. Link is broken so I reuploaded on my hosting. Patch is presented as is and I don’t take any responsibility for it. All credits go to the author.
