    vmplayer-5.0.0 terminates immediately after start

    martinkg63 Lurker

      Hello,

       

      I’m running fedora 17 with kernel 3.5.2-3.fc17.x86_64 and VMware-Workstation-Full-9.0.0-812388.x86_64.bundle.
      vmplayer-5.0.0 terminates immediately after the start.

      vmplayer-5.0.0 only runs with kernel-3.4.0-1.fc17.x86_64

       

      The contents of the file vmware-modconfig-5653.log looks like following:

      Starting vmware (via systemctl):                           [  OK  ]

       

      The two files “/usr/lib/vmware/settings” and “/home/martin/vmware/config” do not exist.
      Now the question is, how can i create these files or what files must be deleted of the old settings. ?

       

      Why exist vmplayer immediately after starting. ?
