Hi,

I compiled my 12.1-RELEASE kernel as usual on several machines. On one of them, this is not possible. The kernel build depends on a nonexistent header file, so as a result this kernel has no vmxnet3 driver.

How can I proceed now? As far as I know, the driver from emulators/open-vm-tools-nox11 has been removed.

Why build a custom kernel at all? The if_vmx(4) driver is included in the GENERIC kernel, so it's unlikely there's anything 'missing' in the source tree. In any case, did you include device iflib too?
