  • We use Virtualbox for testing so we don’t know much about VMWare, sorry! Have you reviewed the information about VMWare in Arch’s Wiki?



  • Hi,

    I’m running VM WS 10 on Antergos. Often with newer kernels (new for VMware at least:) you need to patch the VMware modules for them to compile. ARCH has a script that mostly automates the patching and recompiling. The script is called vmware-patch and you can install it via pacman using the ARCH repos (I think! I’m currently on Debian so can’t check myself).

    The script also re-compiles the modules after applying the patches. Sometimes you need to re-do that from the terminal, though:

    sudo /usr/bin/vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

    Good luck!
