This can be fixed by running the following steps as Root (in a terminal):

Step 1: log in as root (e.g. sudo -s)

Step 2: Enter your Root password.

Step 3: Enter these commands:

curl http://pastie.org/pastes/9934018/download -o /tmp/vmnet-3.19.patch

cd /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source

tar -xf vmnet.tar

patch -p0 -i /tmp/vmnet-3.19.patch

mv vmnet.tar vmnet.tar.SAVED

tar -cf vmnet.tar vmnet-only

rm -r vmnet-only

vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

VMware will now compile the vmnet module for Kernel 3.19. (please make sure you have DKMS installed)

Hope it will work for you. In my case this solved the problem with VMware Player 7.

Note: Im not an VMware Employee. Just trying to help other people.

I tried to use this solution with Workstation 10 and Ubuntu 15.04 but it doesn't work. Is there anything you can suggest to get this working with Workstation 10?

I'd like to, but I don't know how to apply the patch. Any chance of some instructions? Thanks.

Same as wijningssaj's step above,

but you need to save the patch script in the page I gave as /tmp/vmnet-3.19.patch to replaced the step "curl http://pastie.org/pastes/9934018/download -o /tmp/vmnet-3.19.patch".

I have the same problem with Workstation 10 on 15.04.  The patch works for Workstation 11, Player 7.1 but not Workstation 10.

Any help would be stupendous!

Unfortunately I am only licensed for WS10.

Here are the last several lines after installing the patch.

OKAY! I got it.  Workstation 10 on Ubuntu15.04, or whatever-buntu.  I tested this on Xubuntu 15.04 Kernel 3.19.0-18-generic

Created new pastie(10215458) for patch for Workstation 10.

After fresh install of Workstation 10.06

Specifically - > VMware-Workstation-Full-10.0.6-2700073.x86_64.bundle

Must be root, but you can basically copy/paste.

curl http://pastie.org/pastes/10215458/download -o /tmp/vmnet-3.19.patch_ws10

cd /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source

tar -xf vmnet.tar

patch -p0 -i /tmp/vmnet-3.19.patch_ws10

mv vmnet.tar vmnet.tar.SAVED

tar -cf vmnet.tar vmnet-only

rm -r vmnet-only

vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

Credit to the procedure in this thread.

Credit patch code to "budiap" in vmware - "Failed to build vmnet" for kernel 3.19 - Ask Ubuntu
