Hi folks,
I got the following error on installing VMWare under teh AMD 64 kernel.

/tmp/vmware-config1/vmmon-only/linux/hostif.c: In function `MapCrossPage':
/tmp/vmware-config1/vmmon-only/linux/hostif.c:566: error: 
`PAGE_KERNEL_EXECUTABLE' undeclared (first use in this function)
/tmp/vmware-config1/vmmon-only/linux/hostif.c:566: error: (Each 
undeclared identifier is reported only once
/tmp/vmware-config1/vmmon-only/linux/hostif.c:566: error: for each 
function it appears in.)

Unable to build the vmmon module.

For more information on how to troubleshoot module-related problems, please
visit our Web site at 
"http://www.vmware.com/download/modules/modules.html" and

Execution aborted.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get around this?


Kind Regards Russ
