Okay so i tried to install VMWare Workstation pro. I downloaded it and installed the program normally.
The problem now is that when i insert
vmplayer it prints
/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libbsd.so.0' with/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/librt.so.1' for IFUNC symbol `clock_gettime'
Then i started looking this up on duckduckgo and found this post: https://askubuntu.com/questions/966585/ubuntu-17-10-upgrade-broke-vmware-workstation-12-5/966812
I followed this post but when i tried to execute in the
make it prints out the following error:
[...] make: * [/usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vmmon-only/linux/driver.o] Error 1 Makefile:1552: recipe for target 'module/usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vmmon-only' failed make: * [module/usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vmmon-only] Error 2 make: Leaving directory '/usr/src/linux-headers-4.15.0-20-generic' Makefile:120: recipe for target 'vmmon.ko' failed make: *** [vmmon.ko] Error 2

Does anybody have an idea? The make command worked in the
My OS is Linux Mint 19.1 Mate.
EDIT: I try to install vm workstation 12.5.9
EDIT-2: Okay i fixed it. I followed the second most top answer of the link i posted.
git clone https://github.com/mkubecek/vmware-host-modules.git cd vmware-host-modules git checkout workstation-12.5.9 (change it to your version. it's important) make && sudo make install cd /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libz.so.1 sudo mv libz.so.1 libz.so.1.old sudo ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libz.so.1 . sudo depmod -a sudo /etc/init.d/vmware restart
Even tho the
git checkout workstation-12.5.9 didn't work.
