    Can't uninstall or start VMware-Player-14.1.1-7528167 on Fedora

      I'm feeling stuck. I've recently installed a new version of VMWare-Player (14.1.1) and it was working fine until now. When I want to start it, the whole OS just freezes, so I can't really debug it. I've tried uninstalling it using "vmware-installer --uninstall-component vmware-player", but it got stuck as well. I've found there is a process in "uninterrupted sleep" state:

      17461 pts/1    Dl+    0:00 /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-app-control -- -l /usr/lib/vmware

      Here is what's in a log file:

      $ cat /var/log/vmware-installer

      Any advice is welcomed, maybe I can manually uninstall it somehow?
