    Question Help with VMware 8.0 installation

    Howdy,

    Im trying to install VMware workstation 8.0, I've run the script and the installation finished ok, but when I try to execute VMware it doesn't start the services

    My steps were

    chmod +x [VM.....ware.bundle]

    sh [VM.....ware.bundle]

    After the installation I went to applications to start the program, but it gives the next message

    "Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel."

    Here I've 2 choices "cancel" or "install" if I choose install it gives the next message:

    "Couldn't execute « ''\''/usr/bin/vmware-modconfig'\'' --icon='\''vmware-workstation'\'' --appname='\''VMware'\'' --gcc='\''/usr/bin/gcc'\'' --headers='\''/lib/modules/3.4.11-2.16-desktop/build/include'\'' --gcc-ignore-minor '»."



    I've tried to install kernel-headers kernel-devel and gcc but it was already installed in the system

    When I run vmware in a terminal the kernel module updater starts compiling the next:

    - Virtual machine monitor .......... OK
    - Virtual network device ............. (attention icon)
    - VMware blocking filesystem .....(attention icon)
    -Virtual machine communication interface ......OK
    -VMCI sockets .......... OK

    After that it shows a message saying "Unable to start services"

    Can someone knows why this happens?

    Thanks in advance,

    Red face Re: Help with VMware 8.0 installation

    try this
    Code:
    # vmware-modconfig --console --install-all
    Just in case you then get some complaint about vmci have a look here:

    Default Re: Help with VMware 8.0 installation

    Thank you for your answer Sagemta, I've tried what you suggested but i can't make it work.

    Is weird I believe that i have some problem with the kernel build, anyway it seems "vmnet" is not getting installed, is the only thing i appreciate from this log:

    Code:

    Default Re: Help with VMware 8.0 installation

    I've found the solution.

    (btw, im installing VMware 8.0)

    It seems there is a patch that works with kernel 3.1 and above

    VMware Communities: VMware workstation (v8.0.4...

    If anyone else has this problem you can follow the instructions in that url.

    Im running vmware workstation now (:

    Thanks for your answer,

    Best regards

    Howdy @m1cky64,

    Do you still have the source.tar.lzma file? The download link is unavailable because the cited forum http://pavlinux.ru domain no longer exists.
    The file isn't found on Google/Duckduckgo.


    Tks and regards,
    Kleber Schneider
