    ## hlist_for_each_entry build fix

    >Does this solution also work for Saucy?

    There's a fix for the `hlist_for_each_entry` build error at https://github.com/mirror/vmware/issues/7

    I was asking in a round about way if you are running vmware on Saucy, as this sub-forum is for the discussing problems encountered while running the development version. For discussing problems with virtualization on released versions the discussions should be in the virtualisation sub-forum

    Extract VMWare-Tools (probably you will get a folder called vmware-tools-distrib).
    Then:
    > cd /vmware-tools-distrib/lib/modules/source
    > tar xf vmhgfs.tar
    > cd vmhgfs-only/
    > sudo gedit inode.c
    Go to line 888: result = compat_vmtruncate(inode, newSize);
    And change it to: result = 0;
    Then save the file and exit gedit.
    > cd ..
    > rm -rf vmhgfs.tar
    > tar cf vmhgfs.tar vmhgfs-only/
    > rm -rf vmhgfs-only/

    Now restart the installing procedure. It worked for me in Xubuntu 13.04.
    I tried this several times in my Ubuntu 13.04 VM and took me a while to figure out why this procedure didn't work for me.
    I had the vmware-tools already installed and I extracted the vmware-tools once again on my Desktop and and patched according to your instructions.
    Then I'd ran bin/vmware-config-tools.pl from the extracted folder on my desktop and it would still fail in line 888.

    Turns out that regardless of where you launch vmware-config-tools.pl, if you have vmware-tools already installed it will install from /usr/lib/vmware-tools/modules/source/.
    So in that case you need to patch the inode.c in installed path instead of the extracted vmware-tools.

    This worked like a charm for me in Lubuntu 13.04 - thank you bgcngm!!

    Seeing as Saucy is close to a week and a half from release, I don't see the need for this thread any more. Closed.
