VMWare Installation Issue

Postby manuleka » Wed Aug 22, 2012 4:04 pm

Linux Mint 13 KDE
Intel G620

Just downloaded 30 Day trial version of VMware Workstation 8.0.4 for linux (.bundle)

When running it for the first-time it does a kernel module update/compiling, then it reports this:

Code: Select all

Unable to start services.
See log file /tmp/vmware-root/modconfig-3015.log for details.

that log file doesn't exist

i notice on the compiling part the Virtual Network Device has a ! on it while the others:
Virtual Machine Monitor
VMware Blocking Filesystem
Virtual Machine Communication Interface
VMCI Sockets
all have a green tick on them

anyone experience this before?

thanks for any help
~ $ sudo convert "windows xp pro" >> "mint 14"

I had exactly the same problem before my Xfce version fell over and lost all network connectivity.

So after a quick reinstall (64bit) I thought there may have been a problem with vmware itself so I downloaded the 9.0 30 day trial and it was exactly the same.

Major problem and it may force me back to Windoze as I have to use some specific design software and really need a virtual box working. Oracle's version was just useless for my particular requirement.

I've trawled the net and no success.

Let's hope someone else picks up on this that knows what they are doing.

I had the same issue with 8.0.4, the way I fixed was by applying some patches from vmware themselves, I think if you google around a bit more of this issue you will see for yourself.
