VMWare Workstation 7.1.3 Released

Another VMWare Workstation is released and this time, this new version brings better compatibility with Linux Kernel 2.6.32-2.6.36.

Here are some of the highlights related with Linux Kernel compatibility:
  • When you install VMware Workstation on an operating system that uses a post-2.6.34 Linux kernel, the vmmon module fails to compile.
  • The vmxnet and vsock guest modules fail to compile on operating systems that use post-2.6.32 Linux kernels.
  • When you install VMware Tools on an operating system that uses a post-2.6.34 Linux kernel, the vsock.ko module fails to build.
I have downloaded this version, but not yet install it, but i will do it today and test it with Linux Kernel 2.6.36. I hope they don't need any more patches like what i did in the previous post (2.6.36) and this one (2.6.35)
