Fedora 29 & vmware workstation player

Hi everyone, i actually move to Fedora and so i downloaded the newest version (29).

Now i try to install the VMware Workstation Player 15 without success.

How i tried it:

  • requirements:
sudo dnf install kernel-headers kernel-devel gcc glibc-headers
  • make Vmware-Workstation15.bundle executable
  • run the installer:
 sudo ./Vmware-Workstation*15*.bundle 
  • Trace:
Extracting VMware Installer...done.
You must accept the VMware Player End User License Agreement to
continue.

So far so good, but i don't get the installer UI. Next try:

 sudo ./Vmware-Workstation15.bundle --console
Also without success!

Here is the log: @Pastebin

As i see so far Fedora29 is yet not supported by VMware. But maybe someone also tried and can face the Problem?

I would be grateful for any help! Thanks in advance. Tommy
