Installing LInuxMint 6 on VMWare

Postby flake on Fri Jan 23, 2009 6:37 am

Hi all, i just installed LinuxMint 6 on VMware and have an issue with installing vmware-tools. It was installed but wasn't perfectly.

I got these warnings:

Code: Select all
WARNING: "VMCIDatagram_CreateHnd" [/tmp/vmware-config0/vsock-only/vsock.ko] undefined!
WARNING: "VMCIDatagram_DestroyHnd" [/tmp/vmware-config0/vsock-only/vsock.ko] undefined!

WARNING: "VMCIEvent_Unsubscribe" [/tmp/vmware-config0/vsock-only/vsock.ko] undefined!
WARNING: "VMCIMemcpyToQueueV" [/tmp/vmware-config0/vsock-only/vsock.ko] undefined!


And as a result, Auto Fit window doesn't work ... nor auto-release mouse.

Anyone can help? I didn't have this problem with LinuxMint 5.

Thank you.

Cheers,

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I think this is best asked at WMWare - or not :(
This is a bug with kernel 2.6.27 and 2.6.28
I found a patch here
http://www.insecure.ws/2008/10/20/vmwar ... ernel-2627
but I don't know how much I can trust it

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
