    Workstation 12 on Linux kernel 5.3?

      Hi there,

      I’m running Ubuntu 19.10 on my host machine, and I do not wish to downgrade for the time being.


      I tried to install VMware Workstation 12.5.9 on my computer, but it just refused to start at all. I did a little digging, and I found that Workstation 12 isn’t compatible with kernels above 4.x.x.


      The thing is, I can’t upgrade to Workstation 15 because my computer has one of the older processors that it dropped support for. So my question is, is there any way I can run Workstation without downgrading my distribution or upgrading my processor?
