vmware and Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn)

In the process of installing vmware server on feisty I had to apply the following patches:

  • if running a 2.6.19 kernel you will need to follow this link (it’s in French)
  • if running a 2.6.20 kernel you will need this patch in addition to the above patch
  • After I applying the 2 patches I was able to compile with no problems!
