Vmware Server2 Last known working kernel version [closed]

I hope there is some vmware expert here who can help me out.

I would like to know what is the lastest Linux Kernel version which known to work with Vmware Server 2.0.2.

What I using right now is 2.6.32 where the vmmon and other modules still need patching.

For higher versions like 3.x it wouldn’t compile anymore for sure.


The last system I’ve been able to get VMware Server 2.0.2 working on was 2.6.18-128.4.1.el5 on a RHEL5 5.3 server.

If you have the luxury of something 2.6.32 or newer, you have KVM, LXC and many other options available to you. Don’t look back. Move on from VMware Server.
