  1. when building network moduls it shows error in a function. missing func param. it occurs because of kenel funcion has one more param. it’s quite workable solution just to add one NULL to function in vm module source code.

  2. Thank you a lot Sir !!!

    Can you tell me how you discovered the solution ? I’d like to understand more about that :)

  3. Excellent Jaranguda.. I thought of switching to virtual box after so much googling and finally i tried to google with 3.17 kernel version with fedora 20.. First link is this and finally i solved the problem.
    credit goes to you only.
    This is the only solution i found so far.. even all other posts with kernel lower version.
    I don’t know a bit of c.. But with your simple instructions i’m did it.. Thanks once again.
    You saved my time and efforts.
