VMWare with /dev/rtc issue
Lately i've been getting this problem with VMWare. Everytime I start VMWare, or some applications that I installed in Windows XP within VMWare I get the following message:
The host high-resolution timer device (/dev/rtc) cannot be opened (No such file or directory). It appears that the device is not configured into your kernel. Without this device, the guest operating system can fail to keep
time correctly. To avoid this problem, reconfigure your kernel with CONFIG_RTC included, or see *****.com/info?id=34.
I compiled my kernel (126.96.36.199) with the following option included: Device Drivers -> Character Devices -> Enhanched Real Time Clock Support
After doing this I saw that there stil was no /dev/rtc, so I looked at the description within the kernel and it said to create a /dev/rtc character special file by using mknod. So I did that by doing mknod /dev/rtc c 10 135
But still I keep getting that message everytime I start VMWare or some application within the Windows XP I installed in VMWare. And the /dev/rtc I made doesn't seem to be working properly.
Is there anyone familliar with this issue ? Or am I doing something wrong or missing anything ?
