I was wondering if anyone has encountered this same issue I am having and if so, how to get around it.
I have VMWare WS 9 obviously, and when I try to run it on Kubuntu 12.10 I get an error stating:
"Unable to change virtual machine power state: Cannot find a valid peer process to connect to"
I did some research and it seems to be related to VMware not being updated to the newer kernels. I saw a patch located at:
But when I try the patch fix and run WS 9, I then get a new error that states that the vmmon module it was expecting is different than what it found, so it still wont run. Although I just realized it cant work since it is for WS 8.. I jsut didnt realize that sooner.
Still, does anyone have any ideas?
