Help with VMware again! Wont start a virtual machine? vmmon
Hello SUSE community!
So I managed to get VMware Workstation 16 player installed. I set up a windows10.iso and got everything set up. Then I ran into this issue where it says"Could not open /dev/vmmon: No such file or directory.
Please make sure that the kernel module `vmmon' is loaded.", then "Failed. I tried to check out the version with vmware -v and it wouldn't tell me so I just changed the command with what the gui about option said. I also have tried other commands to look up vmware version which didnt work either.o initialize monitor device." Then it just shuts down immediatley? I have loaded a few commands in the command line such as "wget https://github.com/mkubecek/vmware-host-modules/archive/workstation-16.0.0.tar.gz". . Then...tar -xzf workstation-16.0.0.tar.gz...cd vmware-host-modules-workstation-16.0.0.....tar -cf vmmon.tar vmmon-only
....tar -cf vmnet.tar vmnet-only.....sudo cp -v vmmon.tar vmnet.tar /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/..... finally sudo vmware-modconfig --console --install-all. It looks like it wants to start but then shuts down. I checked these files in the /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source directory and the vmmon and vmnet .tar are there. Just need some help please and thanks.
