VMware VMCIDatagram_CreateHnd undefined

Today I tried to install VMware Server 2.0.1 on my Ubuntu 9.04 (64bit) box. It some kind of worked but I was constantly presented with the following error when compiling the vsock kernel module:

WARNING: "VMCIDatagram_CreateHnd" [/tmp/vmware-config11/vsock-only/vsock.ko] undefined!
WARNING: "VMCIDatagram_DestroyHnd" [/tmp/vmware-config11/vsock-only/vsock.ko] undefined!
WARNING: "VMCI_GetContextID" [/tmp/vmware-config11/vsock-only/vsock.ko] undefined!
WARNING: "VMCIDatagram_Send" [/tmp/vmware-config11/vsock-only/vsock.ko] undefined! 

Unsurprisingly, the module wouldn’t load into the kernel which in turn resulted in sluggish response from the server console. After a bit of research (Google to the rescue ;)) I found that this fix still did the trick. If you don’t want to register with Ubuntuforums, here’s the patch:

Running VMware Server Console on Ubuntu Hardy

Since two days I’m running a beta of Ubuntu Hardy and also since two days, my VMware Server Console refused to work. As it turned out, this was caused by two libraries shipped with the VMware Server Console: libpng.12.so and libgcc_s.so.1. Since the library pathes aren’t hard-coded into the executable, all we’ve got to do is move VMware’s version of the offending libraries out of the way:

cd /usr/lib/vmware-server-console/lib/libgcc_s.so.1
mv libgcc_s.so.1 libgcc_s.so.1.org
cd ../libpng12.so.0
mv libpng12.so.0 libpng12.so.0.org
