    VMware Tools Compilation Error

    I am running Ubuntu 13.10 (beta) with Linux Kernel 3.11.0-7 as a Guest OS under VMware Fusion 6.0.0 (1296151) on my Macbook (Mac OS X 10.8.4). I attempted to install VMware Tools 9.6.0 Build-1294478 and got the following errors during the shared folder configuration compile.


    CC [M] /tmp/modconfig-j0IFhU/vmhgfs-only/inode.o
    /tmp/modconfig-j0IFhU/vmhgfs-only/inode.c: In function ‘HgfsPermission’:
    /tmp/modconfig-j0IFhU/vmhgfs-only/inode.c:1893:29: error: ‘struct dentry’ has no member named ‘d_count’
    int dcount = dentry->d_count;
    ^
    make[2]: *** [/tmp/modconfig-j0IFhU/vmhgfs-only/inode.o] Error 1
    make[1]: *** [_module_/tmp/modconfig-j0IFhU/vmhgfs-only] Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.11.0-5-generic'
    make: *** [vmhgfs.ko] Error 2
    make: Leaving directory `/tmp/modconfig-j0IFhU/vmhgfs-only'


    I realise that Ubuntu and the Kernel are not finalised but didn't see this problem until Ubuntu Update-Manager installed the 3.11 Kernel series. Any ideas how to overcome this issue appreciated.

    Hello and welcome to the forums.

    Since 13.10 hasn't yet been released, I'm going to move this thread to the more apropriate U+1.

    This issue is still present on Ubuntu 13.10 now it has been released. I am also receiving the same error. Maybe this thread can now be moved somewhere where it will be noticed?
