    Unable to start Virtual Machine Monitor

    salinero27 Lurker

      Hi,

       

      When I try to run my VMWare Workstation 14.0.0 build-6661328 on my Debian GNU/Linux buster/sid 64-bit , VMware tries to compile and load several modules before run and shows an error compiling Virtual Machine monitor.

       

      Starting VMware services:

         Virtual machine monitor                                  failed

         Virtual machine communication interface       done

         VM communication interface socket family     done

         Blocking file system                                        done

         Virtual ethernet                                               done

         VMware Authentication Daemon                    done

       

       

      The log file shows the below information:
