    Your post seems a question, and this forum is not for questions. Use the
    virtualization forum instead.

    It looks as if you are running as plain user. You have to run "vmplayer"
    as root in a terminal to allow it to configure modules, the first time
    or after you update the kernel. Then, when it prompts to run or create a
    machine, exit and enter again as plain user.

    Since you say you installed it correctly you might want to try this:
    Code:
    #vmware-modconfig --console --install-all
    Now just in case that doesn't work you could try uninstallation:
    Code:
    #vmware-installer -u vmware-player
    Then re-install once again as root which would look like this:
    Code:
    #sh '/home/yourusername/Whereyouhave VMwarePlayer/VMware-Player-4.0.2-591240.x86_64.bundle'
    Then after it's done redo as root:
    Code:
    #vmware-modconfig --console --install-all
    Should work now
