Hello @vintx64
Here on Ask Fedora there are a couple of posts related to VMware. You could see if they describe the same issue.

Could you please try this first:

Maybe you don’t have the package to compile vmware kernel, Install the packaged described there, if this doesn’t work see my comment…

Thanks for the logs.
Did you check that all the packages suggested in this reply VMware unable to start services, are installed?

sudo dnf install kernel-devel kernel-headers gcc gcc-c++ make

I can’t be more precise, since I don’t use VMware.

The message indicate you that , You don’t install those packed

Everytime you run a new log is generated, with the same message.

Quick guide for impatient


First method (build and install):

  tar -xzf workstation-15.1.0.tar.gz
