[Solved] VMWare 12.5.7 on Solus 3

Tue Aug 15, 2017 4:05 pm

Hi,

Am trying to get VMWare 12.5.7 to work on Solus 3, however it fails to work. VMware complains about missing linux-headers for the current kernel version, yet when I try to do 'sudo eopkg it linux-headers-$(uname -a)' apparently no package even exists...

Should I give up and use QEMU or is it possible to install at all?

Thanks

Which kernel are you using?

Code: Select all

uname -a

You need linux-current-headers 4.12.7-11

Code: Select all

sudo eopkg it linux-current-headers
