New vmware-tools-kmp

Disclaimer: I don’t take any responsibility for faults within the software, I just provide the RPM’s! Feel free to ask me about stuff concerning these RPM’s, but I ain’t accountable if your stuff goes kaboom! Oh, and those RPM’s aren’t recommended or supported by VMware!

Since we recently upgraded our VMware Infrastructure to VMware vSphere, I finally had a chance to refresh the RPM’s for the KMP for 2.6.16.60-0.39.3-0.1 and 2.6.27.21-0.1. You can find the source RPM here.

  • vmware-tools-kmp-bigsmp (SLES10: i586)
  • vmware-tools-kmp-debug (SLES10: i586/x86_64; SLES11: i586/x86_64)
  • vmware-tools-kmp-default (SLES10: i586/x86_64; SLES11: i586/x86_64)
  • vmware-tools-kmp-kdump (SLES10: i586/x86_64)
  • vmware-tools-kmp-kdumppae (SLES10: i586)
  • vmware-tools-kmp-pae (SLES11: i586)
  • vmware-tools-kmp-smp (SLES10: i586/x86_64)
  • vmware-tools-kmp-trace (SLES11: i586/x86_64)
  • vmware-tools-kmp-vmi (SLES10: i586; SLES11: i586)
  • vmware-tools-kmp-vmipae (SLES10: i586)
  • vmware-tools-kmp-xen (SLES10: i586/x86_64; SLES11: i586/x86_64)
  • vmware-tools-kmp-xenpae (SLES10: i586)

Just a heads-up: while the modules itself work, VMware did something to the init-script which prevents it to load the modules unless you run vmware-config-tools.pl. I’m still in the process of sorting that out.
