VMWare problem (can't compile vmmon for my distro)


Hello,
I use Zenwalk 5.2 with 2.6.25.4 kernel. I have VMWare 6.0.3. I have followed the guide on Zen-wiki to the letter (this one).
vmware-config.pl fails to compile because of a wrong include in vcpuset.h (it includes bitops.h from /asm instead of /linux), so I fixed that by hand (after an hour or so of searching I found that, tried it, and it failed)
however, it still fails to compile, and gives me this :

Code:
Extracting the sources of the vmmon module.

Building the vmmon module.

Using 2.6.x kernel build system.
