The Player ‘s message is: „C header files, matching your running kernel where not found. Refer to your distribution’s documentation for installing instructions. “
The VMware Player seems to look for the headers in /usr/src, but these’re empty.
Because CentOS 8.x is comparable with Oracle Linux and listed as Supported host operating systems for Workstation Player 16.x (https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/80807), I tried this installation on CentOS 8.4 too.
The messages are similar:
„Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel. “
> Install > Compiling and installing following kernel modules …
„Unable to install all modules. See log /tmp/vmware-root/vmware-10672.log for details. (Exit code 1) “
Does anybody know, what has to be done to get the player running on Oracle Linux or where to find the mentioned instructions?
Please have a look at the attached log file regarding the CentOS installation.
