After the first installation, please:

1) reboot or load vmw_vmci and vmmon kernel modules (modprobe -a vmw_vmci vmmon)

2) Enable the services you need:

  • vmware-networks.service: to have network access in VMs

  • vmware-usbarbitrator.service: to connect USB devices inside VMs

  • vmware-hostd.service: to share VMs on the network

For people who would stay on VMware 12, you can switch to vmware-workstation12 package.

For people who have the same issue than @silenx, you should only have to reload the module (modprobe -r vmmon && modprobe vmmon) to fix it.

Hello, issue on updating/install 14.1.3-1 :

2018-08-15T23:21:43.780+02:00| vmx| I125: Msg_Post: Error

2018-08-15T23:21:43.780+02:00| vmx| I125: [msg.vmmonPosix.badVersion] Version mismatch with vmmon module: expecting 331.0, got 330.0.

2018-08-15T23:21:43.780+02:00| vmx| I125: [msg.vmmonPosix.badDriver] You have an incorrect version of the 'vmmon' kernel module.

EDIT: Resolved with a clean reinstall ( include dependencies ) issue was with dkms and old 14.1.2 probably not removed correctly

@buzo I did that by pacman -S linux-headers.

In fact, this command will install the version 4.17.3-1 linux-headers. This version is not 4.17-2-1 that vmware expected.

And the command yaourt -S vmware-workstation seems to download the right version. I can find it in the path /usr/lib/moudules/.

buzo commented on 2018-07-09 08:54

NowG: Have you installed linux-headers?

NowG commented on 2018-07-09 06:59

module vmmon load failed.

The actions that all I did:

1) yaourt -S vmware-workstation

2) modprobe -a vmw_vmci vmmon

Then the WARNING shows like below: modprobe: WARNING: Module vmmon not found in directory /lib/modules/4.17.2-1-ARCH

vmplayer crashed on guest shutdown, leaving this message:

VMware Player Error:
VMware Player unrecoverable error: (vmplayer)
Unexpected signal: 11.
A log file is available in "/tmp/vmware-sts/vmware-vmplayer-19886.log".  
You can request support.  
To collect data to submit to VMware technical support, run "vm-support".
We will respond on the basis of your support entitlement.

But there is no vm-support executable. What should I do?

linarcx: I don't have this error. Your .bundle file is probably corrupted (maybe not fully downloaded). Remove it and rebuild the package.

TheChickenMan: Thanks! I probably wouldn't be able to create this package without the work of the first packager, Synthead. But I also spent a lot of time to improve his package (to fix bugs, add missing functionalities, maintain for new versions...). It is not funny at all, but I'm pleased with the result.
