VMWare Workstation 6 – Kernel 2.6.22 on Ubuntu Gutsy

I upgraded my Dell D620 from Feisty to Gutsy this weekend, which included an upgrade to kernel 2.6.22. Every time there’s a kernel upgrade, VMWare Workstation needs to be reconfigured with “vmware-config.pl”. This isn’t an issue normally, but today it was. Thanks to Chris Hope with Electric Toolbox I was able to fix the problem quick and easy.

For completeness the error I was getting was the same:
/tmp/vmware-config1/vmnet-only/userif.c:630: error: ‘const struct sk_buff’ has no member named ‘h’
when trying to build the VMNet module – VMMon built and inserted perfectly. Downloaded 6.0.1 and installed it, and I’m back and in the game.
