VMware 10 with Kernel 3.17:
This solution has been full tested with ROSA OS

Officially all the professional VMware products are certified for red hat, ubuntu, generally for the -server editions, and currently with kernel upto 3.8 versions:
We can support them only using some unofficial solutions developed by us, and hosting the patches here...



The base path for fix files:
http://mib.pianetalinux.org/MIB/rosa201 ... kernel317/

If you come from the previous solution, that for the kernel 3.15 serie,
adding only one new patch should be enough, precisely: vmnet.tar

if you need some other missing patches, you can find all, from here:
http://mib.pianetalinux.org/MIB/rosa2012.1/others/



Download all the tar files, save them in a local folder

From root, go to:
# cd /usr/lib/vmware/modules/

- make a safety backup of the folder "source", you can copy and rename it to "source.orig"
- now you must copy/replace the 4 tar files downloaded, just before, into the ./source folder



- Download this txt file
http://mib.pianetalinux.org/MIB/rosa201 ... mware.vmci

- Edit the file (In root mode)
/etc/init.d/vmware

- Replace all the text taken from the downloaded txt file > vmware.vmci
- save it!


Now you can reboot, or you can rebuild all modules with this command
# vmware-modconfig --console --install-all


To verify if the vmware service is ok
# systemctl status vmware.service
