Okay it looks like there's a problem with the vsock and vmblock modules. They build fine, but modprobe fails. It might be a day or two before I can look into this.

Taking over maintenance of this package again, as it seems nobody else is willing currently. Just updated to work with VMWare Workstation 12.5 and Linux 4.7.1. Let me know if you have any issues.

Disowned package because I cannot currently update it regularly. Whomever decides to maintain it in the future, if you'd like to add me as co-maintainer I can help out from time to time

I'm not going to be able to update this for some time. Should I disown the package, or would someone like to be added as co-maintainer?

In /etc/udev/rules.d/60-vmware.rules, 660 needs to be surrounded with double-quotes. It is currently only correct on line 2.

KERNEL=="vmci", GROUP="vmware", MODE="660"
KERNEL=="vmw_vmci", GROUP="vmware", MODE="660"
KERNEL=="vmmon", GROUP="vmware", MODE="660"
KERNEL=="vsock", GROUP="vmware", MODE="660"

No, it's still doesn't build correctly:

/var/lib/dkms/vmware-modules/308.0/build/vmci/linux/driver.c:746:40: error: passing argument 5 of ‘VMCIContext_InitContext’ from incompatible pointer type [-Werror=incompatible-pointer-types]
&user, &vmciLinux->context);

Hi, I am new to Arch and AUR so I do not know how I can contribute to the PKGBUILD but I was able to get vmware 12 to run without this package by following the solution at.

1) vmmon.tar
- untar
- change ./vmmon-only/linux/hostif.c
- replace all:
"get_user_pages" to "get_user_pages_remote"
- tar and replace original
2) vmnet.tar
- untar
- change ./vmnet-only/userif.c
- replace all:
"get_user_pages" to "get_user_pages_remote"
- tar and replace original

Successful compiled on FC23 FC24, FC25 (kernel 4.7) ARCH 4.6.2-1

Seems to build fine for 4.6.2-2, at least on my end. If you're still having issues, let me know, and some build logs would be nice

I plan on looking into this tomorrow. Haven't actually been able to test my 4.6 support yet, so thanks for the feedback.

I have the same problem as doblerone with VMWare Workstation 12.1.0.
