Unable to Restart Virtual Ethernet

Unable to Start Virtual Ethernet

I am using VMWare Player 14.0.0 for Linux

My Build: 4.12.0-kali2-amd64

This is meant for my Linux Machine (Kali Machine), I have installed a VMWare Player. I was expecting it to have Internet on my VM when using bridge mode.

However, it says something like Ethernet1 failed to connected to /dev/vmnet0.

root@kali:/usr/lib/vmware/modules/source# sudo vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

[AppLoader] GLib does not have GSettings support.

Stopping VMware services:

   VMware Authentication Daemon                                        done

   VM communication interface socket family                            done

   Virtual machine communication interface                             done

   Virtual machine monitor                                             done

   Blocking file system                                                done

When will a patch be ready?

This is quite urgent

Hi Alvinoo,

Your host OS is not on the list of supported host OS's.

So I do not think that VMware will quickly come up with a patch for an issue with Kali linux.

Also note that they never answer "when" questions.

Perhaps somebody else in the forum has a patch for you, my suggestion is to try and search the forum. There certainly have been patches been shared for fixing issues with Kali down here before, just can't remember if it had to do with a network issue.
