I have upgraded Ubuntu 19.04 from 18.04 version. After upgradation of the OS, VMware 15 stopped working. I have reinstalled the VMware 15, but still its giving "VMware Kernal Module Updater" popup with message "Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into running kernel". After clicking on the install button it shows the error that it can start the services. can anyone let me know how to get this resolved.
Milo83! I also have this problem and the code below worked for me.
#!/bin/bash #make sure you have git. if you don't, run: sudo apt-get install git #copy and paste this code into a .sh file. e.g. vmwareFix.sh #run: chmod 744 <filename.sh, e.g. vmwareFix.sh> #then run this file: /path/to/this/script VMWARE_VERSION=workstation-15.0.4 TMP_FOLDER=/tmp/patch-vmware rm -fdr $TMP_FOLDER mkdir -p $TMP_FOLDER cd $TMP_FOLDER git clone https://github.com/mkubecek/vmware-host-modules.git cd $TMP_FOLDER/vmware-host-modules git checkout $VMWARE_VERSION git fetch make sudo make install sudo rm /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libz.so.1/libz.so.1 sudo ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libz.so.1 /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libz.so.1/libz.so.1 sudo /etc/init.d/vmware restart
The instructions are in the comments above. Bye.
