Trouble installing vmware v5.5.3.34685 in openSUSE 10.2


Here we go:

I have prepared kernel. Trying to compile vmware modules hanges.

make[4]: *** [/tmp/vmware-config11/vmmon-only/linux/driver.o] Error 1
make[3]: *** [_module_/tmp/vmware-config11/vmmon-only] Error 2
make[2]: *** [modules] Error 2
make[1]: *** [modules] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.18.2-34-obj/x86_64/default'
make: *** [vmmon.ko] Error 2
make: Leaving directory `/tmp/vmware-config11/vmmon-only'
Unable to build the vmmon module.

I have tried to patch the vmware source and config files with
vmware-any-any-update105.tar.gz which gave me this:

Updating /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl ... corrupted
Updating /usr/bin/vmware ... No patch needed/available
Updating /usr/bin/vmnet-bridge ... No patch needed/available
Updating /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-vmx ... No patch needed/available
Updating /usr/lib/vmware/bin-debug/vmware-vmx ... No patch needed/available
VMware modules in "/usr/lib/vmware/modules/source" has been updated.

But it still failes at same point when tryin to compile modules.
My kernel is: 2.6.18.2-34-default #1 SMP Mon Nov 27 11:46:27 UTC 2006 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

My proc is X86_64 Athlon.

I had vmware working on SuSE 10.0 64bit just fine.

Any info what am i missing that i can not get this to work ? Any help appreciated.

Thx for any help given in advance.

the actual error looks to be higher up than the output you've pasted, that's just fallout and debris from the real problem... scroll up a bit next time.
