a short progress report on my travels this far, getting vmware
workstation up and running on FC1. no, i'm not done but i thought i'd
share if anyone else wanted to try this.
starting with the newest vmware WS 4.0.5, on a system running kernel
2.6.0-test10, first, following the instructions, i made sure that the
* RTC support
* parallel port support as a *module*
next, install the WS rpm, and edit /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl, and,
because of 2.6 kernel, "/proc/ksyms" -> "/proc/kallsyms".
in addition, because of 2.6 kernel, download a tarball of vmware
and run "runme.pl", which will do a little patching and ask if you want to
continue on and run "vmware-config.pl", which i did.
that's as far as i got right now, but it's worth noting that i didn't
have to hack any more than this. no other changes to
/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl, and no need to change the CC variable to use
the older compiler.
so, as soon as i pull a copy of win2k out of storage, it's on to
thoughts? further advice?
