modules 279.3 don't work out of the box with Linux 4.1.3. I've
collected a patch set which gets them to compile on my Gentoo systems.
I've updated my system to gentoo-sources-4.1.3.
This caused a rebuild of the NVIDIA drivers and the modules for VMWare
Player. And of course compilation of VMWARE
modules was broken. If you face the same problem: download vmware-modules-4.1.3.tbz
and place the resulting folder vmware-modules in
/etc/portage/patches/app-emulation. The package should
then emerge just fine.
