Description Brent R Brian 2003-06-05 22:48:43 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
When running the vmware-config.pl:

driver.c: In function `VNetPrintPIDs':
driver.c:1488: warning: implicit declaration of function `for_each_task'
driver.c:1488: parse error before '{' token
driver.c: At top level:
driver.c:1497: parse error before '}' token
driver.c:1529: warning: `VNetProcessOwnsPort' defined but not used
make: *** [driver.o] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/tmp/vmware-config1/vmnet-only'
Unable to build the vmnet module.

It compiles and runs fine RH 8.0.
Has not compiled since I upgraded to RH 9.0 (fresh install), or
after RHN update.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 2.4.20-13 & VMware 3.2.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install VMware-workstation-3.2.1 on RH 9.0 (rpm -i ....)
2. Configure vmware-config.pl

Actual Results:  Install script will stop with error message (see description)

Expected Results:  Successful compile of vmnet module

this is not our code.... you are better of by filing a bug with vmware.
