Backtrack HD install won't run vmware workstation
I installed BT 2.0 Beta to hard drive and then installed vmware workstation, so I can run windows server to test against. All worked fine. I've now upgraded to BT 2.0 Final and vmware won't install. Not compatible with new kernel.
Unable to build the vmmon module.
I've tried running vmware-any-any-update108.tar.gz but that fails on errors:
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./runme.pl line 9
I don't want to go back to Beta. Does anyone know how to fix this?
I'm running BT2 Final on my HD with VM WKS 6 beta as well - no problems.
# cd /usr/src/linux
# make mrproper
# make cloneconfig
# make modules_prepare
# make clean
then run VMware installer.
i tried to install vmware-player103 but i failed :-(
i have problems, because i haven't a suitable vmmon module for my running kernel.
i tried to follow your 5 commands but i got errors after #make cloneconfig:
make: *** No rule to make target `cloneconfig'. Stop.
make: *** [cloneconfig] Error 2
and after #make modules_prepare:
scripts/kconfig/conf -s arch/i386/Kconfig
*** You have not yet configured your kernel!
*** Please run some configurator (e.g. "make oldconfig" or
*** "make menuconfig" or "make xconfig").
make: *** [silentoldconfig] Error 1
make: *** [silentoldconfig] Error 2
make: *** No rule to make target `modules_prepare'. Stop.
can anyone help?
thx for your time and your help,
Make sure you have kernel sources in /usr/src/linux. That howto is posted in the forums.
