Hi, I'm currently receiving the following error when trying to execute vmware-patch

/usr/lib/modules/extramodules-*/version': No such file or directory

when I try to follow that route, I encounter only this directory /usr/lib/modules/5.4.13-arch1-1

I have installed the vmware-workstation downloaded directly from vmware VMware Workstation 15.5.1 build-15018445

I really tried to overcome the issue, but I am not sure what this route /usr/lib/modules/extramodules-*/version': is intended to find, so I'm currently unable to apply the patch correctly

I tried to apply the patch manualy, but vmci didn't start, so, I'm asking for help here

@orson I've implemented your patch. Thank you. Meanwhile, I've added you to the maintainers list as you are more into the topic as I currently am.

Hi,

Would you consider merging patches for 14.1.7 / kernel 5.4? Thank you in advance. https://gitlab.com/snippets/1927987

That's intentional. The vmware-workstation package already contains the patches needed. If you've installed that, you're all set. You only need this if you're using the standalone VMWare installer from their website.

Firstly, thank you very much for the patch, but I'm unable to install without having to remove removing VMware-workstation 15.5.0-2.

Hey everyone, I've adopted this package after trying to get Workstation running on my machine. I've added the patches for 15.5.0 on kernel version 5.3.x. I'd appreciate the feedback, as this is my first package. Thanks!

Hi Martin, thanks for your feedback. I don't have any new version to test on so it is probably best I leave this package. Please feel free to take over and add the patches, the structure is fairly easy. Thanks everyone for your help.

Michal Kubeček (https://github.com/mkubecek/vmware-host-modules) wrote some patches for getting the modules to build under linux kernel 5.0. I tried them with the workstation-player 15.0.3 and the modules build (I didn't really tested them with running a VM, though).

I adapted them to the patches in this package and posted copied them to pastebin:

vmmon-15.0.3-5.0.patch: https://pastebin.com/dab5acdR vmnet-15.0.3-5.0.patch: https://pastebin.com/Nh7JfwJM

@ben.white: Since you're maintaining the package, could you add those patches (after testing them with running a VM)?

Thanks in advance!

...and thanks to Michal Kubeček!

Unfortunately this package is not working if vmware is installed in arbitrary locations, like /usr/local/ instead of /usr/, which I do whenever possible, and everyone should, to keep the system clean.
