Any idea when support for VMware will be resumed it has stopped working since kernel 5.8.x.x update.
See this thread
for more information.
Not until VMware releases a new version with support for kernel 5.8.
Apparently simply patching vmmon/vmnet is not enough this time because the kernel internals have changed radically - it’s possible it won’t appear until one of the major LTS versions offer 5.8 kernel.
I’d suggesting sticking to 5.7.x on TW or migrating over to KVM if you do not require VMware.
