    VMWare on Linux Host with 5.x kernels

    Hi folks
    If you are using a Linux Host with 5,x kernels e.g Fedora 30 etc

    You need to apply a patch to get VMWare to work properly

    From your Linux Host run :

    wget https://github.com/mkubecek/vmware-h...-15.1.0.tar.gz
    tar -xzf workstation-15.1.0.tar.gz
    cd vmware-host-modules-workstation-15.1.0
    make install

    Now re-boot not even needed --just start VMWARE again and it should all work fine (you of course need to have kernel headers with the ability to compile and make (standard dev tools).

    Here's image with kernel 5.2.5-200
