I also faced this issue sometimes back, and was lucky to find the solution, with the help of a friend.

The solution is provided below:

1. Go to the url

2. Download the file named as “patch-modules.sh”, and save it to someplace like “temp” folder

3. Now you need to change the permission on the file, as such use the following command:

[email protected] temp# chmod +x patch-modules.sh

4. Now you need to execute this file, as such use the command:

 [email protected] temp# ./patch-modules.sh

5. You have to wait patiently, and you will be informed when the command completes, and you will be able to launch / run the VM Player smoothly
