    Tried to install Parallels Tools (version 15.1.2.47123) on a guest OS: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.1 (kernel version 4.18.0-147.0.3.el8_1.x86_64), using the following command:

    Code:
    dkms build parallels-tools/15.1.2.47123 -k 4.18.0-147.0.3.el8_1.x86_64
    But failed with the following message:

    Replace line 42 in <....>/prl_fs/SharedFolders/Guest/Linux/prl_fs/file.c:
    -#if LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(4, 20, 0)
    +#if LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(4, 20, 0) || defined(PRLFS_RHEL_8_1_GE)

    Hi Alexander,

    After copying and pasting your revised code line, the exact same error still shows up unfortunately.

    Just found out that another source file also needs to be updated:

    /usr/src/parallels-tools-15.1.2.47123/prl_fs/SharedFolders/Guest/Linux/prl_fs/prlfs.h:

    The following three lines need to inserted right after the line #47:

    #if RHEL_RELEASE_CODE >= RHEL_RELEASE_VERSION(8, 1)
    #define PRLFS_RHEL_8_1_GE
    #endif

    Then the modules were built correctly. Thanks for your hints!

    You are right.
    I forgot about this define, but you did it anyway :)

    New to parallels. Where can I find this version of tools? . I am waiting to study for RHCSA on RHEL 8.

    I made all the changes and I an error. Your kernel headers for kernel 4.18.0-147.0.3.el8_1.x86_64 can not be found at /lib/modules/4.18.0-147.0.3.el8_1.x86_64/build or
    /lib/modules/4.18.0-147.0.3.el8_1.x86_64/source. kernel-devel and kernel-headers are installed.

    Have you installed the kernel development RPM yet: kernel-level-[version number]?

    I did install kernel-devel-$(uname -r). When I try to download kernel-level-$(Unami -r) it say could not find a match.

    Ok I got the kernel-headers issue resolved. Is there another command that I need to run before the dkms command?

    Assuming the parallels tools source tree have been installed to /usr/src/parallels-tools-15.1.2.47123, then:

    dkms add parallels-tools/15.1.2.47123 -k [kernel version]
    dkms build parallels-tools/15.1.2.47123 -k [kernel version]
    dkms install parallels-tools/15.1.2.47123 -k [kernel version]

    Sorry for so many questions I've never done this before. How do you install the source tree. That maybe my issue I am running into now bc it basically says that is is missing the prl_env/ something directory. So maybe if I install the src tree it will see all of it then. I really appreciate your help.

    I have copied the files from the iso to that folder parallels-tools. I can run the other commands but still not sure about installing the parallel-tools source tree?

    dkms add parallels-tools/15.1.2.47123 -k 4.18.0-147.3.1.el8_1.x86_64

    Error! DKMS tree already contains: parallels-tools-15.1.2.47123

    You cannot add the same module/version combo more than once.

    ok I think I know what the issue is. I have a different kernel installed. So I think the change in file.c and prlfs.h need to be changed. I just do not know what they need to change too. Here is my kernel.

    I tried to install Parallels Tools (version 16.1.0.48950) on a guest OS: Fedora Linux 33 (kernel version .9.11-200.fc33.x86_64).
    Same error as on top:
    /usr/lib/parallels-tools/kmods/prl_fs/SharedFolders/Guest/Linux/prl_fs/inode.c:58:31: error: implicit declaration of function 'segment_eq' [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
