Over the past few years several people on the VMware communities forums have released patches to fix the vmware modules for the next “fresh” release of the Linux Kernel / Distro. I’ve used them in the past with much success, but I generally like waiting for the official VMware support. However, I’m pretty excited about Fedora 11 (just to many new goodies not to play) and I noticed there’s a new updated patch for 2.6.29 and even 2.6.30 Kernels!
VMware Workstation 6.5.2 module patches/discussion: 2.6.29
VMware Workstation 6.5.2 module patches/discussion: 2.6.30
Sun has official Fedora 11 support (and now 2.6.31) with VirtualBox: VirtualBox 3.0.0 (if that’s your cup of tea)
Note: Obviously Fedora is the test bed for the QEMU/KVM merger so you can go that route as well, but I love VMware. ;0)
