VMware Workstation 9.0.2 Linux not starting in Fc19

Hi all.

I've always worked on Fedora since quite a long time and love this distribution.

But since a while, I'm getting more and more difficulties when installing VMware Workstation for Linux.

I'm now since this morning on Fedora 19 Schrödinger's Cat and I can't install VMware Workstation 9.0.2 correctly.

I have the VMware-Workstation-Full-9.0.2-1031769.x86_64.bundle file.

Once I installed my Fedora, I run the update process ( # yum update) and install correctly all available updates for Fedora Fc19.

So as of now I'm running Kernel 3.9.8-300.fc19.x86_64

Once rebooted, I install VMware Workstation 9.0.2 :

# bash VMware-Workstation-Full-9.0.2-1031769.x86_64.bundle

The installation process runs correctly until the end and I get the "Installation successful" comment.

But there is no way to get VMware opened. When I click on the VMware icon in the Gnome3 Activities menu, I see the VMware Workstation tab opened and loading, but it disapears 10 seconds after, without opening VMware Workstation.

I've tried the command vmware-modconfig --console --install-all which ends with "Starting vmware (via systemctl) : OK

Even after this, I can't open the software.

When I type :

# vmware

It says :

The VMware Tools kernel modules could not be automatically rebuilt.

Please manually run:

  vmware-config-tools.pl --modules-only

To rebuild them.

When I enter this command :

#  vmware-config-tools.pl --modules-only

It says :

[root@localhost ~]# vmware-config-tools.pl --modules-only

bash: vmware-config-tools.pl: command not found...

Please help ! VMware Workstation is an essential tools for my work for me !

Thank you very much !
