VMware – 12.5.6 Breaks Fedora 26 / GCC 7 Workaround.. — 7 Comments

  1. hi Robert,
    I’m running fedora 26 beta and try to get the vmware player running. You mention some patches for vmmon/vmnet – any hint where they can be found?

    best regards
    Mirco

    • Latest Vmplayer (with W/S Version 12.5.7) does not need any patches, now. Still needs the runtime fix for the executable, with F26, and vmmon/vmnet still need to be compiled separately, as mentioned in previous articles.

  3. i have the same problem as Jet Walsh, but can anyone send a solution. It makes me SICK when people expect an answer but nobody send a answer. When i install the new 12.5.8 it have the same problem, i can not use kernel 4.13 on Fedora 26.

    • hi,

      please install the kernel-headers

      apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`

      or something similar for your distro. search for package with similar name
