Vmware kernel module updater error

Workstation Failed Install on Ubuntu/CentOS/RHEL (VMware Kernel Module Updater fails)

This post is about Workstation Failed Install. So, hope you like it.

Hi Guys, Sometimes you may have a trouble completing the VMware Installation on a newly installed Ubuntu or RHEL or even CentOS. The base install succeed, but the “VMware Kernel Module Updater” ends with the following failure message:

“Workstation xx.x.x Failed Install on Ubuntu 19.04 Kernel 5.0.0-8-generic – VMware Kernel Module Updater fails”

Example:

Workstation 15.0.4 Failed Install on Ubuntu 19.04 Kernel 5.0.0-8-generic – VMware Kernel Module Updater fails

So in this small guide, we will discuss a small solution to solve this issue and start vmware workstation successfully.

Issue

VMware Kernel Module Updater fails when you tried to open or update vmware workstation

Workstation Failed Install – Solution

  • First, Loading vmware workstation (you can check which version you are running with ‘vmware –version’ when you can’t load the workstation GUI to see the version) results in a prompt that you need to update the kernel driver for VMware.
  • We need a custom patch because Vmware sucks at staying on top of these things… so with the script below, the problem will be solved.
  • Then add the following:
  • Make the script executable

NOTE:

“Make sure that the VMWARE_VERSION value in the script is the version of your current workstation”

Output:

Followed this method (notice it’s updated from the original solution to include the updated ws version). Just stick the following in a script that you run after every kernel upgrade

  • Workstation fires right up successfully and works as it should without 3rd parties fixing basic kernel updates to their stuff

Conclusion

In this guide, we showed you how to fix the issue with VMware Kernel Module Updater which fails when you start Vmware workstation or even try to update it.

I recently installed VMware Workstation 14 Player on my Linux device. I downloaded the .bundle file and ran the installer without problems. However, when I ran VMware, the kernel module updater appeared (which I assume always happens on the first run). All the modules were shown as installed with the green check mark, but the Virtual Machine Communication Interface alone was not installed. To clarify, all the modules were successfully installed except vmci.

I’m running a distro of Linux called GalliumOS (which is basically just Ubuntu 16.04 with a different UI).
