Question Fedora 8, VMwareWorkstation-6.0.2-59824, kernel 2.6.24.3-12.fc8 Problems!

OK, getting these errors when running /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl :

kernel? [/lib/modules/2.6.24.3-12.fc8/build/include]

Execution aborted.
Any ideas? The newest "vmware-any-any-update*" is here and is dated "09-Apr-2007 01:40", almost a year old.

I've blogged a walk-through for fixing this:

I did the following:
- Installed vmware-any-any-update115.tar.gz (use google to find it).
- Fixed the obvious bug in the vmmon driver. You'll see a complaint that the bitops.h that gets included from include/vcpuset.h should only be included from linux/bitops.h. Go to /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source and unpack vmmon.tar. Go to vmmon-only/include and fix vcpuset.h (change that #include to linux/bitops.h), pack the vmmon.tar file again and rerun vmware-config.pl

I expect vmware-any-any-update116 will be out soon...

birger,
