Not compile under kernel: 5.4.80-1-lts (x86_64)

This is the error:

I need this for a remote server under vmware... any help will be appreciated.

Also having compilation issues on my system.

/var/lib/dkms/open-vm-tools/10.0.0/build/vmhgfs/dir.c:717:18: error: ‘struct inode’ has no member named ‘i_mutex’; did you mean ‘i_mode’?

This package is currently outdated and broken. Please fix.

Hi guys,

The package is currently not compiling on my side :
It looks like there's a compilation error with vmhgfs.

Any idea?

>> You should install open-vm-tools and use vmhgfs-fuse

The Arch wiki is out of date. How does one go about using vmhgfs-fuse for shares?

Edit: I have updated the wiki entry:

with the methods I managed to get to work using vmhgfs-fuse. It feels like a bit of a hack - comments or critiques?

ok I added JackM patch and updated pkg, it works now, but this is last time I update it.

You should install open-vm-tools and use vmhgfs-fuse

I am experiencing the same issue as JackM. I tried applying his patch, but no luck.
Now I am not getting anywhere, any guidance would be hugely appreciative.

davispuh commented on 2015-10-01 10:25

@JackM you can submit PR to
also it probably should be 0006 instead of 0001

I'll test, merge and update package later.
