Also, please review this feature for inclusion: http://mihamina.rktmb.org/2017/07/vmware-libz-libfontconfig-libexpat.html

I encoutered the "libz" problem and found that including all shipped libraries resolves it.

Can you bake in the libz workaround, please?

# cd /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libz.so.1
# mv libz.so.1 libz.so.1.old
# ln -s /usr/lib/libz.so.1 .

That would be very handy.

I second will.price94's comment. I had to apply these patches to run VMware Player 12.5.2 build-4638234 with kernel 4.11.6-3.

Note these are incremental patches, for me it was enough to rename them to
vmnet-12.5.2-4.11.patch and vmmon-12.5.2-4.11.patch, copy to /usr/lib/vmware/modules/patches and rerun vmware-patch. Now vmplayer is all up and running.

@all i tested thoese patches 2 months ago, it applied failed with vmware-12.5.6, and vmware-12.5.6 worked fine with 4.11 without any patches on my computer.
i'm sure i installed the latest version of vmware-patch with the newly installed vmware-12.5.6, it worked fine, but it seems not working well on someone else's system.
so i don't know what i should do with this problem now.
would you please provide more information for me? guys.
i started doing maintaining of this package since 2 or 3 versions ago.
I feel that my ability is not enough to keep it working properly, i need your help.
thanks for Det's great works and welcome to join the maintainers.

Currently seems to fail to compile on kernel 4.11

I applied the patches here:

https://pastebin.com/yjbDHiSX

with success

I'm disowning this. I used to enjoy hacking it together back in the day, but now I haven't even touched it for almost two years, and rains should be the new maintainer to decide onward.

I did a full write up some time ago of my "farewell speech", which I've been meaning to post, but now I'm like nah. You can read it there: https://pastebin.com/A8F5jEBK

Hi,

I am running VMWare Player 7.1.4 (the last rev to support Unity under Linux hosts).

I am upgrading Debian 8 to Debian 9 which will mean Kernel 4.9 instead of 3.16.0.4

Can I use this patch as-is or any other hacks I will need.

My Linux-fu level is only about medium strength so any help much appreciated.

Thanks!
Mark
