VMware Player crash.

I told this in 3.02b too.
But it was not fixed.

How to fix it?
There is a Fail Service too.

I need this fixed. Thanks…

I apologize I’m not an expert of vmware but just installing the package vmware-view-open-client is not enough?

I haven’t used vmware-view-open-client.

As I understand vmware-view-open-client is a remote desktop client.

VMware Player is a virtualization software like Oracle VirtualBox and Windows Virtual PC. And it is widely used.

I installed VMware® Workstation 12 Player on openSUSE leap 42.1. Yesterday VMware Representative gave me a call but I do not have Paid support. :(. I will try to sort this out.

First I admit to not knowing very much about VMWare.

For what it’s worth a lot, most, maybe nearly all OpenMandriva testers are using VirtualBox. That’s partly because there is a free and sort of open version. And partly for standardization regarding test results and problem solving. At one time it was deemed easier to have one ‘brand’ of VM instead of several.

Don’t know if this might be something you would want to try?

I installed Oracle VirtualBox but It is like locking to a one software.
I can work on VMware Player, VirtualBox, Windows Virtual PC, etc

As I know VMware is in the forefront of virtualization.

Looking forward to your response."

Tried to install VMware Workstation Technology Preview 2017 for Linux (VMware-Workstation-Full-e.x.p-6056110.x86_64.bundle)
https://communities.vmware.com/community/vmtn/beta/workstation-pro

While installing I got this error.

Then, This. I need these Kernel Headers. They are not available in mcc

It’s just an error of the graphical theme, maybe you may ignore it

Maybe it can be linked to this bug.

Edit:
There is a discussion too.

I’ll bet you do have kernel-release-headers-4.11.3-2-omv2015.0.x86_64 in mcc. That’s what the kernel headers package is called.

If you have that installed you may need to do what the error message is telling you and specify the path manually. This is normal when one is dealing with 3rd party software.

Error in installation. Another issue I face is: If I open multiple tabs in Chrome and then open MCC PC gets stuck. Better look, at this too.

May I know the “kernel-release-headers” path too.

There was a problem during the installation:

Sorry, the following packages cannot be selected:
