I get VMWare workstation pro 15.5.5 for linux through my school, it comes in the form of a .bundle file. I'm running the latest arco linux (uname -r = 5.15.12-arch1-1) and ran the installer through the terminal. it seemed to install just fine. I've ran this same installer on several debian installs with no issues. This time, when I run it from the wisker menu it never appears. Task manager shows that something runs for a second and stops. running from the terminal with and with out sudo yields an error:
/usr/bin/vmware: line 105: 10160 Segmentation fault (core dumped) "$BINDIR"/vmware-modconfig --appname="VMware Workstation" --icon="vmware-workstation"
Each time the number '10160' is different and some searching on the error has yielded no results. running vmware player results in the same error. I did find a thread that suggested something about the installer being bugged and to check out /etc/vmware/config permissions. Mine look like:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1055 Jan 7 03:45 config
i just gave config full permissions just for fun with chmod 777 and that still yields that same error.
any help would be apprieated. Thanks!
