Description Jared B. 2013-09-14 07:11:36 UTC
Kernel 3.6.10 introduced some changes that broke vmware-modules.  This was fixed for the versions of vmware-modules supporting VMware Player 4 and 5, but for some reason it was not fixed for vmware-modules-238.6, which is required for VMware Player 3 (which, unfortunately, I still have to use).

The attached patch fixes building under 3.10 and makes VMware Player usable again.  It's based entirely on 264-3.10.0.patch, which is already in the tree.  Would be great if you could add this as well.

Reproducible: Always

FYI, this was fixed for the newer versions in bug 470896.  Meant to include that reference in the original description.

Sorry but we're dropping vmware-7. Too much.
