Fix VMware for Kubuntu Hardy Heron

From Stack Overflow
Jump to: navigation, search

When trying to configure VMware under Kubuntu/Ubuntu, I kept getting this error:

include2/asm/bitops_32.h:9:2: error: #error only <linux/bitops.h> can be included directly

The fix is relatively easy and can be encapsulated into a shell script:

#!/bin/bash
cd /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/
mkdir tmp
cd tmp
tar -xf ../vmmon.tar
cd tmp
sed -i.bak 's/asm\/bitops.h/linux\/bitops.h/' vmmon-only/include/vcpuset.h
tar -cf ../vmmon.tar *
cd ..
rmdir tmp
echo "Now run vmware-config.pl again"
