Archlinux - Kernel 4.11 - VMWare workstation 12.5.7
With this combination, when I launch "vmware", despite the fact I already "export VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_LIBS=force", I get those lines:
Unable to load libfontconfig.so.1. /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libz.so.1/libz.so.1: version `ZLIB_1.2.9' not found (required by /usr/lib/libpng16.so.16)
Unable to load libfontconfig.so.1 from /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libfontconfig.so.1/libfontconfig.so.1: libexpat.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Unable to load dependencies for /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libvmware-modconfig.so/libvmware-modconfig.so
In order to workaround, I decided to get the things to the maximum: Add all shipped libraries in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
So I created my custom launcher of "vmware" and this is the content:
VMWare Workstation 12 and Kernel 4.7
When recompiling vmware kernel modules on a kernel 4.7, I get this error:
error: ‘struct net_device’ has no member named ‘trans_start’;
did you mean ‘mem_start’?
dev->trans_start = jiffies;
This seems to be an already encountered problem: http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=1746http://ferenc.homelinux.com/?p=356
I choosed to replace the line, instead of deleting it.
- dev->trans_start = jiffies;
I also noted that I had to re-tar the modified sources instead of leaving them untared, because the compilation process only takes the archives.
On precedent editions of these files, I just left the modified folders "vmnet-only/" and "vmmon-only/" expanded without the need to re-tar them.
Associated workflow creation
I'm a Jira Cloud user and begining from some version 6, I noticed that when I create a project, it automatically creates a Workflow and Issue Scheme that is prepended by the project key and which is a copy of the default scheme.
I always had to make a cleanup after creating a project.
Default workflow for new projects
I also miss a feature that would allow me to make a custom workflow (and globally custom project setting) the default for new projects I create.
Solution: Create with shared configuration
While searching, I noticed that with Jira Cloud which is version 7.1.0 at the time I write, there is a link at the bottom of the "Create project" wizard:
"Create with shared configuration" will allow me to select the project I want the new one to share configuration with.
The new created project will use the same configuration as the project I selectThere will be no creation of Workflow and Issue Scheme that I need to cleanup
