[solved]Porteus 1.2-vmware: unable to build kernel module(s)

Post#1 by HermanH » 21 Jul 2012, 14:24

In Porteus 1.0 (32 bit) I have succesfully build and used a module for VmWorkstation / VmPlayer.
When trying to use this module in Porteus 1.2 (or 1.1) the "Vmware Kernel Module Updater" tries to rebuild the kernel modules for the new kernel. No succes helas ..unable to build kernel module..

Is there something missing in "crippled_sources-porteus-v1.2-i486-1ftm.xzm" ?

Any help would be appreciated.

HermanH

P.S.
To the Porteus team: Thank you very much for this very fine little distro ! :beer:
