Fedora 11 – VMware Workstation 6.5.2

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)
