VMware – Fedora 23 Breaks vmware app, and a Workaround.. — 4 Comments

  1. On Ubuntu 15.10, which suffers the same gcc5 issues, it was sufficient to just use:

    env VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_LIBS=1 /usr/bin/vmware

    Which is probably just equivalent to your “force”, but I didnt have to copy any libraries into the vmware tree.

    • Thanks for the info.. I tried this on Fedora 23, but # vmware just gave a GTK warning, and then ended.. Still needs the ‘copied’ libs..


  2. Same happens with openSUSE Tumbleweed (GCC 5.2.1 is used). Also vmmon needs to be patched for 4.3.0 for some reason.
