    vmware 7.1 and gentoo kernel 3.0.0 x86_64

    I'd like to get vmware 7.1 workstation going on my asus N73SV - x86_64 kernel 3.0.0. Sadly, emerge fails when building the vmware moduleslooking for a kernel configuration option

    >>> Emerging (2 of 2) app-emulation/vmware-modules-238.4
    * Determining the location of the kernel source code
    * Found kernel source directory:
    * /usr/src/linux
    * Found sources for kernel version:
    * 3.0.0-gentoo-jes-10
    * Checking for suitable kernel configuration options...
    * CONFIG_BKL: is not set when it should be.
    * Please check to make sure these options are set correctly.
    * Failure to do so may cause unexpected problems.
    * Once you have satisfied these options, please try merging
    * this package again.
    * ERROR: app-emulation/vmware-modules-238.4 failed (setup phase):

    Resolved - Google for layman and use the instructions there to create an ebuild overlay. Installation went flawlessly and VMware 7.1 is fully working for me
