[QUOTE=mauriB;24231]I have downloaded and installed it but the modules compilation failed. In the vmware-modconfig-23989.log there are these errors:
2014-10-17T14:07:35.727+01:00| vthread-3| I120: Building module with command “/usr/bin/make -j4 -C /tmp/modconfig-ilN85D/vmmon-only auto-build HEADER_DIR=/lib/modules/3.0.101-0.35-pae/build/include CC=/usr/bin/gcc-4.3 IS_GCC_3=no”
2014-10-17T14:07:36.442+01:00| vthread-3| W110: Failed to build vmmon. Failed to execute the build command.

I just installed the free version of VMware Player 6 (VMware-Player-6.0.3-1895310.x86_64.bundle) and it ‘just worked’. I can’t locate any vmware-modconfig log files.
Rather unhelpful that the log doesn’t contain anything more informative than ‘Failed to execute the build command’. Do you have /usr/bin/make ? I’m guessing you do since it’s mentioned in the log and similarly I’m guessing you do have gcc since /usr/bin/gcc-4.3 is mentioned. DO the /tmp/modconfig- files mentioned in the log still exist? If so what happens when you run one of the commands in the log that apparently couldn’t be executed manually?
For future reference, when pasting output of commands or contents of log files it helps with readability to wrap it in CODE tags. Look for the # button on the toolbar when composing.
