Today virtualization is the buzzing word that is making the world spin[:-)]. Everyone is talking about virtualization solutions, since it offer better resource utilization. There are many virtualization software available in market, but my personal favourite is VMware.
Recently I upgrade my host system’s Linux kernel and after upgrading when I tried to open VMware, it throws error that it need to compile the kernel. I allowed VMware to compile the kernel but it was a failed attempt.
After searching I found that VMware version 8.0.2 have some problem with latest kernel, so I need to patch the kernel. So here is a link that have a patch attached. If you are also facing the same issue then apply the patch and let me know if there is any other issue.
