Default linux-image-2.6.26-1-amd64 not supporting vmware-player kernel modules?

Hi all,

I'm running unstable, and on the previous linux image version for
amd64 (2.6.25-2-amd64) I didn't have any trouble compiling the vmware
kernel modules coming with the latest vmware-player tarrball
(VMware-player-2.0.4-93057.x86_64.tar.gz).

However when compiling the modules for the same vmware-player version
but on latest linux image (2.6.26-1-amd64) I got a lot of errors. I'm
attaching the log of "make-vmpkg -b <deb_path> -k -s
VMware-player-2.0.4-93057.x86_64.tar.gz"

Has any one noticed this already? Is there any work around? I still
have 2.6.25-2-amd64 so I can stay with 2.6.25, but I wanted to know if
there's some one else trying the same...

Thx,

That has been discussed at length in the VMware linux forum: I run the
vmserver and it compiles with 2.6.26 + update117c but it won't activate
the client.


Check the vmware player forum for issues, but you're out of luck with
VMware amd 2.6.26!
