VMWare fun install

VMCI isn’t default since VMWare workstation 6 but happens that with my version 9 it is enabled.

With my kernel 3.8.0-29 it is breaking during modules compilation at driver.c, an open-vm-tools file. Few syntax errors like missing data types (declaration) and so on.

I could simply disable VCMI or fix the problem correctly, but this is my own computer at my home so I decided that it woudn’t be fun enough.

VMCI should get the file from:

/usr/src/open-vm-tools-2012.12.26/vmci/linux/driver.c

But for some reason it is messing things up and using another file or re-generating some other shit.

The solution was to brute force it 🙂
