Recently I was trying to look into vmware pvscsi modules for newly announced linux kernel 2.6.35-rc2. I compiled the kernel with option: make oldconfig where it asked me for various interactive options and all I did is Kept pressing the Enter ENTER key(Donno if that is the correct way to slect default ).The Kernel Compilation anyway went fine and I can see new kernel at grub screen, booted and it went fine.Now when I explored I found that nor the vmware_balloon and vmw_pvscsi modules are present which means I need to install these modules.
I came to know that recently a new version of the vmware memory drivers being included through this page:
where you can see an entry like:
MODULE_DESCRIPTION("VMware Memory Control (Balloon) Driver");
Doesn't it mean that the new kernel has new driver version inboxed?
Also, I tried to install modules through modprobe and insmod(seems that this doesnt work) but couldnt do that.
