6 I'm sorry, but I don't understand the phrase "with whatever sources were
7 there before running vmware-config[.pl]". Are you simply saying that you
8 had to rebuild your kernel when you installed a new version of
9 gentoo-sources? (AFAIK, there is no automatic way of installing a new
10 version of gentoo-sources and automatically building and installing it.)
12 Regardless, I build a new kernel, reboot and then try to run
13 I've been able to do this for about a year through a
14 dozen or so new versions of gentoo-sources, but a few weeks ago it
15 stopped working.
17 What versions of GCC, perl and make are you using?
19 Thanks.
