WS 12.5.9 has segfault (error 14) on host Linux 4.12.14 kernel

Jump to solution

I've just upgraded to the 4.12.14 Linux kernel (openSuse 15.0) and am unable to start WS v12.5.9. The error message is,

     "vmware-modconfi[4626]: segfault at 7950 ip 0000000000007950sp 00007ffd7597ee08 error 14 in apploader[55798bc03000+ad000]"

Host processor is Intel Penryn 2.8ghz Core 2 Duo. Thanks in advance.

Got it. Here is the most current solution. As root run,

"sed -i '/export PRODUCT_NAME="VMware Workstation"/s/.*/&\nexport VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_LIBS="yes"/' /usr/bin/vmware"

then install Kubecek patch,

       "wget https://github.com/mkubecek/vmware-host-modules/archive/workstation-12.5.9.tar.gz

       tar -xzf workstation-12.5.9.tar.gz

       cd vmware-host-modules-workstation-12.5.9

       make

       make install"

and

     "cd /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libfontconfig.so.1

     mv libfontconfig.so.1 libfontconfig.so.1.old

     ln -s /usr/lib64/libfontconfig.so.1"

stay tuned. Please let me know if I've missed anything. Best regards to Kubecek for their contribution.
