General :: Kernel 3.0-ARCH VMWare Modules Wont Build
Aug 4, 2011
Since new kernel 3.0 update I cannot rebuild vmware modules
sudo vmware-modconfig --console --install-all Unable to initialize kernel module configuration
how to do that. Where do I insert the "CONFIG_LOCALVERSION" line.
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.
I'm using VMWare Workstation 7.0.1 on my F12 x64 System with a self-made Kernel 2.6.32-7.The last days everything went fine, but since todays morning i can't run VMWare anymore.It tells me, that there are no Modules for my Kernel and when i try to build them i get the following error:
Code: Using 2.6.x kernel build system. make: Entering directory `/tmp/vmware-root/modules/vmmon-only'
What I don't get are any kernel-headers-<version>.<arch>.rpm Files. Don't I need them to rebuild modules and drivers on System B? Otherwise, how should I copy my new headers to System B? BTW, System B crashes when I try to build the Kernel on it, that's why I'm building debugger Kernels on System A.
im running suse 11.3_x64 clean install along side with Win7 Pro _x64 had a big fight installing Vbox 3.2.8 PUEL edition but i need to test some VMWare products like 'VMWare vShpere (ESXi 4..0.1 - which i couldn't install in a vm in Vbox) ' before putting it in production enviroment in some of my clients. version: VMware-Workstation-Full-7.0.0-203739.x86_64 The installation of vmware was quite simple with no errors. the problem kicks in after the first reboot when i try to run it. before installing vmware i installed the following:
When i try to run vmware workstation the 1st error kicks in: Before you can run vmware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel:
The other day I installed VMware Player on the system when the Kernel was 184.108.40.206-32.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.
I just installed a fresh CentOS 5.2 32bit system. I used "The Perfect Server" server document from Howtoforge and went through those steps and then added Webmin administration console. I then tried to install VMware Workstation 6.5 onto the system. I downloaded the latest VMware bundle, ran it and everything went fine. I then try to run vmware and I get the following messages
C header files matching your running kernel were not found
Before youcan run VMware Workstation, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel

I have installed VMware (VMware-Player-3.0.1-227600.x86_64.bundle) on my laptop. When I open Vmware from Applications/System Tools/VMware Player.I get a window that says: VMware Kernel Module Updater Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel.When I click on install and after putting in my passwd.a window comes up with a list:
But it just try the first one and show an error (window) that says.unable to build kernel module see log file /tmp/vmware-root/setup-9572.log for details.I cannot even go into the folder vmware-root because it says I do not have permissions even though am an administrator.
I have installed the most basic Arch Linux only with command line interface as guest OS on Windows using VMware. The problem is when I maximize the Vmware window, the Arch Linux console does not adjust to the full screen. How to do this without installing X window?
I also want to make copy-paste work to and fro from windows without installing X. Is it possible?
I'm trying to install Sun VirtualBox Additions into Fedora 12 which is installed in VirtualBox running on top of Windows 7. As the Fedora install was originally a live distro which was then installed to the HD, it may be missing some essential files for compiling.
My attempt to install the VBoxLinux additions is incomplete and I can't get the full range of video displays. The largest is This is the error message: "Your system does not seem to be set up to build kernel modules".
Should I update Fedora to install all the updates available? I did find one webpage which gave an accurate list of files to install for this purpose but can't find it now.
I'm trying to install some wireless drivers, but apparently I don't have a /lib/modules/<kernel>/build directory, which is causing the Makefile to throw an error. Is there a specific place I should point the Makefile at?
I want to install debian on vmware workstation 7.1.4 but there's a problem! when I try to install vmware tools or open-vm, it can't complete compile modules of vmware. It is a big problem... It seem problem of kernel version after 2.6.37... But I can't find solution. logs.... Before you can compile modules, you need to have the following installed...
I have recompiled a few kernels, but all on 32bit systems so not sure if that has anything to do with it.
Running Arch Linux 64bit, most recent version.
My first thoughts was that it might be my grub bootloader configuration, so had a big play around with that but it didn't fix it. Also made sure support was built for filesystems. However almost all that Fstab mounts are ext3 anyway, and certainly the root and /boot are. Now thinking it may be a memory error so will run a check when I shutdown.
I am trying to setup Slacware 13.1 x86_64 to a encrypted partition. I used the README_CRYPT.TXT howto : [URL] At the step when I create an initrd.gz I get this error: Quote: ERROR: No /lib/modules/220.127.116.11-smp kernel modules tree found for kernel "18.104.22.168-smp"
I tried to look into the directory and there was only modules under 22.214.171.124. So I tried to change the command into: Quote: mkinitrd -c -k 126.96.36.199 -m ext3 -f ext3 -r cryptroot -C /dev/sda2
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:
I was trying to install VirtualBox through the YaST > Software Management but it is not working, someone in the forum told me that I have to download the OSE version and do it manual way. Finally I am able to start up VB but not able to use the network connection. Thus I am trying to do this:
/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup. I get this error:
When I type dmesg, it shows me a bunch of info which I don't know what should look for. When I type modprobe vboxnetflt, I get the error: FATAL: Error inserting vboxnetflt (/lib/modules/188.8.131.52-1.2-default/updates/vboxnetflt.ko): Invalid module format. what should I do in order to get my VB to be able to connect to the internet?
when i try and run the latest vmware workstation, i get an error at compiling virtual machine monitor it says: Unable to build kernel module. See log file /tmp/vmware-root/setup-7625.log for details. When i try and go to the folder vmware-root it says i do not have the required permissions. I'm on the latest 11.04, i really need this working.
I'm trying to install the "kernel26-headers" package in Arch so I can (try to) compile the Intel 865G graphics drivers from off their website (I can't get H/W acceleration working with xf86-video-intel, but I know the thing has a GPU, because if I boot a Knoppix CD that I have, it enables Compiz by default, and it works damn well).
Any time I try "pacman -S kernel26-headers" I just get a bunch of errors spat back at me code...
Now, I have tried enabling all the US mirrors (HTTP and FTP), and I have even tried a couple of FTP servers in Canada and even Great Britain. None of them seem to work at all!
I have just compiled a new kernel. When I boot into this new kernel and do an lsmod it is only running two modules. The only thing I changed in the configuration file was to compile ext4 file system into the kernel. My computer is an HP Pavilion dv4. The two modules are lirc_ene0100 and lirc_dev. I am running Ubuntu 10.04. The new kernel is 184.108.40.206+drm33.5. The kernel seems to work fine but I need to know why and how it can only be running two modules.
I'm trying to install VMWare server on my Kubuntu box and it's telling me there are 3 "kernel modules" that it needs me to remove (apparently they were installed previously and VMWare isn't liking that).How do I remove them? Never messed with the kernel modules before.
I recently updated the kernel from SLES 11 to SLES 11 SP1 .However my kernel modules are not getting loaded and they throw an error such as shown below:"Errornserting mii : Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)"
It has been years since I have need to compile the kernel or its modules. Here goes: I recently upgraded to ubuntu 10.10 and needed the kernel source and its modules source. The relevant directories are in a mess. Several diff versions, broken links, the works. Is there a nice easy way, to remove all of the sources, there, and err "install" the ones for my latest kernel, in the correct places. Then I might have a chance at getting the two modules I need complied! Nvidia being one for the geforce 4 mx420 nv17
Yet another problem I have. Suse is taking a while to learn but I swear I'm getting there. Can pritty much do everything by CLI now. I'm trying to run VMware Workstation 6.5 on OpenSuse 11.2, Gnome. I had it running fine but then needed to do a system re-install and upon installation this time I get a error saying it's is Unable To Build Kernel Module and reffers me to a error log. The error log says:
Code: Mar 14 22:07:51.420: app| Log for VMware Workstation pid=6136 version=6.5.0 build=build-118166 option=Release
I'm trying to compile a kernel for my Crux Linux install. I figured I'd do a 'make defconfig' to setup a .config file with the default configuration and then try to add anything I will need for my specific system. I found a script that scans my system and prints out a list of any current modules I am using. That way I can make sure to add these to my new kernel. It looks something like this:
Is there a way to add these to my current configuration without having to go into 'make menuconfig' and search for each one? It's not too hard to search for many of them. But the ones with short names I'm not finding. Like ac.ko for example. 'ac.ko' returns 0 search results and 'ac' returns anything and everything with those 2 letters in it.
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.
