Hi,

I installed Fedora 14 x64 on my OS and updated my OS. Then I installed VMware-Player. All the installation systems were performed successfully. However, when I tried to run VMware-Player I received an error message. Have a look at the error message below. It is showing that it is unable to build Kernel Module. How can I get a remedy of this problem?

Please help.

Unable to build Kernel Module.

See log file /tmp/vmware-root/setup-7357.log for details

Couldn't see the log file for the issue. Check whether the correct version(64/32bit) you have installed. I have found similar issues before for incorrect version. You can also use Virtual Box for Fedora which is completely free and easy to install. Command for installation is "yum install VirtualBox" logged in as super user.

Hi Hall,
The error can be due to incorrect permissions of VMware or version of the kernel.
To resolve the above mentioned errors, the following solutions are stated below:
Solution 1: Resolve the permission problem
1) Ensure before installing VMware, Click 'run as administrator'
2) Check that it has sufficient privileges to compile the kernel modules
3) Complete the installation if the above mentioned conditions are satisfied
Solution 2: Version of Kernel
1) Check that kernel-<version>-source*.rpm is installed on the host
2) Check that kernel-<version>-devel*.rpm is installed on the host
