• VMware Workstation 11 Not Working


    Trying to get VMware Workstation 11 working on my up-to-date Antergos with Gnome 3.16.
    Attached should be the log detailing the problem, but I need help resolving it.
    Anyone know how?

  • Can’t read the file. You can post it in gist or pastebin and put the reference link here.

    Cheers!

    I recalled Dustin saying Antergos wasn’t supported on vmware.

    @lots.0.logs said:

    Hi,

    I’m afraid our Installation images do not support VMWare. Sorry! Virtualbox is supported though.

    Cheers!

  • OK, maybe I misunderstood.

    @Ski , are you trying to run Antergos as a guest os in VMWare, or are you trying to run VMWare in Antergos (Antergos as a host OS) ?

  • @karasu Trying to run VMware on Antergos. It is my host OS.
    @Wyn - Thanks for the link!
