Admin X2GO client does not start
2018-08-20 12:36:00

After GCC update starting X2GO in Fedora 27 I've got a critical error:

x2goclient: error while loading shared libraries: libssh_threads.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

In my case in directory /usr/lib64/ :

sudo ln -s libssh.so.4.5.1 libssh_threads.so.4

To mount multi partition image file one can use offset option:

At first, using fdisk command in terminal

# fdisk -u -l rpi_image280914

we define partition structure of the image rpi_image280914. The output looks like

  
Disk rpi_image280914: 16.0 GB, 16012804096 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1946 cylinders, total 31275008 sectors

Updating kernel for linux OS is always a head-ache for vmware modules recompilation. GCC not found, memory allocation errors and many others usually prevent from vmmon and vmnet modules recompilation.

VMware 14, last version at the moment, is smoothly installed with all modules compiled on my Fedora 26-28 OS. However global memory allocation problem does not allow launch any VM. The previous version, VMware 12, works fine if vmmon and vmnet modules have been compiled.

I found solution which enables module compilation for my latest kernel 4.6.13 and ten previous ones:
