VMWare 1.0.3’s kernel module won’t compile with kernel 2.6.20 without help

The trick is this, courtesy of wilbur.harvey:

tried this for my Ubuntu Feisty 2.6.20-2-lowlatency kernel and it seems to work fine. I just commented out the

static inline _syscall1(int, compat_exit, int, exit_code);

statement.

You have to change the file /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vmmon.tar to rw, then extract the file vmmon-only/include/compat_kernel.h, edit it and then put it back in the vmmon.tar file, then run vmware-config.pl
