Which error? You have not posted it. Just “…” then empty space.

But no longer. To use version 3 you will have to patch it heavily so
that it finds headers and things - and then it may work or not.

Meaning that you would put in whatever you have as your user name & if you’ve kept the Player in your Downloads Folder that command line will tell your PC where to find it. You’ll have to type this yourself as it is highly unlikely you’d name yourself “yourusername” this is why you do not C & P this.
As An example in my case I typed mine in so that it looked like this
# sh /home/robbie/Downloads/VMware-Player-5.0.2-1031769.x86_64.bundle
Step 3 still as root it is OK to C & P this.
#vmware-modconfig --console --install-all
When you copy leave out the “#” sign!
Do that & you should have a VMware player that works!
