Hello everyone, i'm trying to run vmware player on fedora 28 (kernel is 4.17) but it fails to start, the log is https://pastebin.com/DsnAw1kN

I tried the all the hints i found on google but they don't work

@tsadoq , vmware is always a pain from kernel to kernel release you have got to touch the vmnet and vmon c library that why i migrate to gnome-boxes and kvm or include virtualbox, let me time to check whe is the patch is there is one , regards.,

Sorry to see you're having problems with this. On my machine Player 14 installed cleanly and works fine. I have intel CPU/chipset and nVidia graphics, but I don't know if that makes a difference.

tsadoq: On my system, VMware Player 14 has required nothing more than acknowledging a request to update kernel modules after a kernel point release update.
