I'm struggeling with my VMWare Workstation.
Environment: Kubuntu 18.10 with Kernel
4.18.0-12-generic on a Lenovo Thinkpad
Situation: While the notebook runs with kernel version
4.18.0-11-generic, I can start vmplayer, it compiles (if needed) its kernel module (vmmon.ko and vmnet.ko) and then starts the virtual machine without any problem.
After updating to kernel version
4.18.0-12-generic, vmplayer compiles again both modules, however the modules cannot be loaded anymore. Loading the modules manually leads to the following error message:
root@koehn-ThinkPad# modprobe -v vmmon
modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'vmmon': Operation not permitted
If I reboot the system and start again
4.18.0-11-generic, everything is fine again.
Does anybody have an idea?

4.18.0-13-generic. The result is identical to
