Updating VMwareTools-3.5.0-64607.tar.gz to compile on Linux kernel 2.6.24


Today I wanted to give VMI (the new paravirtualization support from VMware) a try and therefore decided to upgrade my guest OS'es linux kernel to the latest available version which is 2.6.24.3.
Of course, VMware tools refused to compile out of the box and therefore I had to patch them a bit to get this experiment going.

Installation instructions, patch downloads, etc. can be found at my projects website. Have fun trying and if the patches don't work for you, drop me a post in my support forum and I'll see what I can do for you.
