Description Warren Togami 2004-10-22 05:42:23 EDT
Please add a descriptive phrase to the summary, and more in-depth
description here (be sure to note any arch-specific issues):

VMWare WS 4.5.2 is known to work on FC3 after two workarounds are used:
1) http://ftp.cvut.cz/vmware/
You must upgrade the kernel modules and configuration using the
unofficial vmware-any-any-* toolkit available from here.
2) cp -rp /dev/vm* /etc/udev/devices/
After vmware-config.pl is run and the vmware modules are loaded, this
command above works around vmware's lack of /sys/class/* nodes needed
for udev.
Comment 1 Ed Bailey 2004-10-22 16:58:55 EDT
Warren -- here's what I added; I'll assume this is acceptable unless I
hear otherwise:

Note

VMware WS 4.5.2 is known to work on Fedora Core 3 after the following
workarounds are used:

  o You must upgrade the kernel modules and configuration using the
unofficial vmware-any-any-* toolkit available from:

      http://ftp.cvut.cz/vmware/

  o After vmware-config.pl is run and the VMware modules are loaded,
the following command creates the /sys/class/* nodes needed for udev:

      cp -rp /dev/vm* /etc/udev/devices/
