I run Linux 3.0.4-gentoo-r2

birne ~ # gunzip </proc/config.gz | grep -i APIC

The emerge failure also happens with the vmware overlay.

Could you try apic.patch?

I have update vmware overlay, but which way I have to apply apic.patch ?
emerge -av vmware-modules gives the same error.

Tanks, that fixes it for me.

updated apic.patch

Since the context in the hostif.c that is relevant to the patch has changed, I finally used this attached (slightly changed) apic.patch.

You need to create a local portage overlay as explained in and copy the app-emulation/vmware-modules/ directory recursively over to your new repo, except for the .ebuild files, where you should only copy the one you need to modify (vmware-modules-238.5.ebuild). Then download the apic.patch that was linked by Yuriy Rusinov and put it in the files/ subdirectory within the vmware-modules directory in your overlay. Then locate the "epatch" commands in the vmware-modules-238.5.ebuild that you copied to your overlay and append "epatch ${FILESDIR}/apic.epatch" to that function. Then remove the Manifest file from your overlay's vmware-modules directory and regenerate it by calling `ebuild *.ebuild manifest` from within that directory. Then you can emerge -v1 vmware-modules and should see it being taken from your overlay instead of the default portage tree.

This should be obsolete by now.
