    Default VMware Workstation Player 12.5.7 fails to install

    The installation of VMware "Workstation Player 12.5.7" fails on my pretty young openSUSE 42.3 Leap (64bit) system.

    I have also tried to install the "console-way", which fails as well and shows the following output:

    Code:
    
    # ./VMware-Player-12.5.7-5813279.x86_64.bundle --console

    Installation was unsuccessful.
    


    I have read and considered quite a number of tips about which preconditions need to be met.
    Among those have been the following:
    • Make sure to have installed: gcc kernel-devel
    • Make sure to have installed: kernel-devel kernel-headers


    I might have to mention that I always skipped the entering of a license key.

    The installation bundle "VMware Workstation 12.5.7 Player for Linux 64-bit" has been downloaded from here: https://my.vmware.com/de/web/vmware/..._0|PLAYER-1257

    The only installation log I could find was located here: /tmp/vmware-root/vmware-vmis-20821.log
    Unfortunately it doesn't give me hits how to fix the problem:

    Code:

    VMware 12.5.7 is not compatible with OpenSuse 42.3.

    Check the logs for the install if there's a missing package from your system. Usually the kernel mods fail to compile and install because they need this patch: https://communities.vmware.com/message/2693257#2693257

    /rant
    I am waiting for more than a month for a patch to come up. My VMware Workstation is still not working with the patch applied (the application screen freezes when starting a virtual machine and only a forced reboot fixes it). I'm contemplating now the license cost vs. usability and that I should have used VBox instead of getting a VMware Workstation Pro license...

    Did you patch yourself or use the ready-made modules from the link in this message: https://communities.vmware.com/message/2695926#2695926 ?
    A number of people reported to me, that they work for them.

    Hello,
    I'm here with same problem. I did switched my main workstation PC from Win10 to Opensuse Leap just because I hopped that everything else I will run on VMware Workstation but unfortunately not. And I'm really angry about that..
    My OS version same as guy created this topic and I do have VMware Workstation PRO 12.5.7 build-5813279 running on 4.4.87-25-default with modifications that I've done as described here https://communities.vmware.com/message/2692989#2692989 by henricw84 and it works, but I'm happy if one VM running ok, but if more or some more hardcore VM like VMware vSphere appliance running on my Intel i7 with 24GB RAM and couple SSDs and few HDDs. Yesterday I never seen that my PC acts like PC's in school 20 years ago. Lagging for more few minutes and with 8 cpu threads on 100% load and sometimes I have to hard reset PC just because I have no time to wait until stops freezing.. I used same PC and same SSD's HDDs and same VM's on Windows 10 and very rarely seen that one or two cpu threads jumps temporary up to 100%. usually just about 40-60% average load with more that few VMs.
    Will wait for VMware Workstation version 14 and if that will not solve the problem, so there is two chose, or leave OpenSuSE or VMware... :/

    When I tried to understand why my VMware Workstation Player installation fails, I came across this log file
    /var/log/vmware-installer.
    The most interesting section follows right below:

    This log shows similar errors for all my failed installation attempts, which I have executed in the last days
    with VMware-Player-12.5.7-5813279.x86_64.bundle and today with VMware-Player-14.0.0-6661328.x86_64.bundle

    The failure is might be related to the fact that I did install the
    VMware Remote Console
    (VMware-Remote-Console-10.0.1-5898794.x86_64.bundle) some weeks ago.

    How could I possibly get rid of the logged error:
    Integrity Error: Adding file /usr/lib/vmware/setup/vmware-config with mtime 1506873830, fileType 0, and uid 8.

    Default Re: VMware Workstation Player 12.5.7 fails to install

    You can try stopping the KVM daemon before installing VMware Workstation.

    It's true that although you can typically install multiple virtualization technologies on the same machine, you can't be running more than one at a time... Except for Virtualbox, AFAIK all the major virtualization technologies will configure daemon services to start up on boot.

    I did stop the kvm modules with
    Code:
        # modprobe -r kvm_intel
        # modprobe -r kvm
    ... and repeated the installation of VMware Workstation Player, which failed again with essentially the same error (see below in red), just without complaining about kvm:

    Why do I get this error:

    and what could I do about it?

    Your install is complaining about a file that already exists (probably from a prior install attempt).
    Move or remove the problem file instead so it doesn't have to be over-written and try again.

    Now I simply renamed the file
    /usr/lib/vmware/setup/vmware-config
    to:
    /usr/lib/vmware/setup/vmware-config.old
    and started over with the installation - same error:


    Code:
    [2017-10-02 19:49:42,782] Running on a real machine!
    [2017-10-02 19:49:47,574] Cannot use vmware-app-control to shut down open VMs, defaulting to fallback message.

    But when I look into this folder in question here, I do find that:

    Code:
    Thales:/usr/lib/vmware/setup # ll
    total 1616
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 826864 Oct  2 19:50 vmware-config
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 826864 Oct  2 18:53 vmware-config.old
    
    So the "integrity" error must be something special ... could it be related to the fact that the
    root partition is a BtrFS ?

    Default AW: VMware Workstation Player 12.5.7 fails to install

    Do you compare the md5sum of the downloaded vmplayer?
