Fedora :: VMware Player Not Compling Kernel Modules / Fix It?

Aug 4, 2011

System. fedora 15, fully updated Kernel 2.6.40-4.fc15.X86_64
64 bit. Gnome 3

The other day I installed VMware Player on the system when the Kernel was 2.6.38.8-32.fc15.x86_64. On running VMware player after installing the kernel-headers and gcc files the program ran fine (I did not try to install the VMware Tools). I also have not loaded the guess OS as yet.

toady I did and update in which the kernel was updated. I checked to ensure the Kernel-headers were also updated for the latest kernel.

After rebooting the machine the running kernel was then 2.6.40-4.fc15.x86_64. I then tried to start VMware Player. It indicated because the kernel was changed it needed to install new kernel modules, OK, It open the module screen and then crashed.

The log says it can not compile Vmmon which is the first module. it does not go any further.

Tried to installed a new copy of VMware Player over the old one but this only resulted in the same error messages.

Any ideas on how to fix this.

Installation :: VMware Player Not Compling Kernel On Ubuntu 10.10 / Solve This?

Oct 11, 2010

I've just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.010 - Maverick Meerkat.

Launching VMWare Player 3.1.2 I get the message: "Before you can run VMWare, several modules must be compiled and loaded into running kernel".
I click ok, but there are problems recompiling VMCI sockets.
The effect is that my windows image starts, but then crashes.

Do you have some suggestions to solve the problem ? Or is it only a problem of compilation with the new 10.10 kernel, not yet available for VMWare?

General :: Kernel 3.0-ARCH VMWare Modules Wont Build

Aug 4, 2011

Since new kernel 3.0 update I cannot rebuild vmware modules

Quote:

sudo vmware-modconfig --console --install-all Unable to initialize kernel module configuration

how to do that. Where do I insert the "CONFIG_LOCALVERSION" line.

Quote:

Same here. This seems to be due to the kernel version being "3.0" instead of "3.0.0". Recompiling the Kernel (and all modules based on it, e.g. nvidia) with
CONFIG_LOCALVERSION=".0-ARCH" allows me to compile the modules and run VMware.

Ubuntu Installation :: VMware Player - Kernel Panic - Not Syncing - VFS - Unable To Mount Root

May 5, 2010

I recently started to use Ubuntu in VWware player on my windows-XP. I installed ubuntu 10.04 few days ago, It was working fine.

Yesterday, I compile a new kernel, kernel 2.6.33 in my vmware ubuntu 10.04. Everything went well till I did reboot. before reboot I use the command "update-grub" to make it compatible to the new kernel. BUT... after rebooting, I have a problem in loading a grub correctly. it gives me following message " [2.149136 ]kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)" and I can not proceed further. I have my all data on it. I also tried to boot it from live CD but unfortunately, I can't mount the hard disk on it in order to get those data from my old Ubuntu set up.

This command was successful, but I don't know if this is alright. I made the changes in lilo.conf, add initrd = initrd.gz. This is all on unencrypted /boot partition. The boot=/dev/sda1 I also set for the unencrypted boot partition. When I boot the system I get a kernel panic:

Fedora Installation :: New Kernel Will Not Boot (Modules)

Mar 26, 2011

The new kernel upgrade on Fedora 14 will not boot. lib/modules do not exist is the message. Grub was adjusted to match the old kernel, and the new kernel when booting says lib/modules do not exist. The old kernel has twice as many modules as the new kernel in lib/modules. How do I get the new modules to install so I can boot with the new kernel then? Should I reinstall the new kernel?

General :: Reduce Fedora's Disk Size In VMware Player?

Jan 3, 2011

I'm new to Fedora 14, vmware player. After getting Fedora up and running in VMware player. The disk size was 2.7 GB. After three hours of working with it, the disk size has bloated to 4.3 GB. I havent added software to account for the near doubling in size. How do I reduce the size back to 2.7GB range or lower. Im new to Fedora and superuser controls. Im removing more software than adding software. Is this a VMWARE problem or Fedora problem?

I use Debian 5.0.6 32-bit through VMware workstation installed on my Windows Server 2003. I just simply installed it from CD-1 and I use Directadmin on that.

I need a lot of iptables commands for blocking but I keep getting missing module errors on that one, I did lsmod | grep -i iptables to see there are no modules. It should have been installed by the disc image but I don't know why it didn't. So I now want to know how to get those modules required by iptables.

Fedora Hardware :: Making Kernel Modules For Asus PCI-G31 Wireless Card?

Feb 1, 2010

I've got a wireless card and would like to make a driver module for it from the ralink tarball. Here's the details:

1. The Asus PCI-G31 uses the RaLink RT2561/RT61 802.11g chipset.

Code:

lspci
<some output omitted>
04:03.0 Network controller: RaLink RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI

2. I am using the latest driver download from www.ralinktech.com which is

2009_0123_RT61_Linux_STA_v1.1.2.3.tar.bz2

3. I followed the documentation and I think it makes a script. Here's part of the README from the tarball.

Code:

Build Instructions:

1> $tar -xvzf RT61_Linux_STA_Drv_x.x.x.x.tar.gz
go to "./RT61_Linux_STA_Drv_x.x.x.x/Module" directory.

Fedora Hardware :: Run At 1920x1200 - Error: Building The VirtualBox Guest Additions Kernel Modules [FAILED]

Jan 31, 2010

I opted to install my Linux Fedora distribution, in a SUN VM (Virtualbox). [URL] I have 2 questions:

My current max res available to select is 1024x768. Can I run at 1920x1200? My display indicated that it is 'Unknown'. I don't know if that is in on the deal, or not...

Second question: When installing VBOXADDITIONS_3.1.2_56127, I am getting the error: Building the VirtualBox Guest Additions kernel modules [FAILED]

If I am displaying the log correctly, it indicates: Makefile:23: *** Error: unable to find the sources of your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_DIR=<directory> and run Make again.. Stop Pictures are located here, in the EVGA Linux forum: [URL] I am new to both Linux, and Fedora.

My mission statement: To run Linux using the Fedora distribution, in a VM window under Windows 7 64bit Ultimate, with the ability for scripting using Bash, with the Perl programming language installed, and use Apache Tomcat to monitor both apps, and various VM installs, on numerous Servers via the internet.
