Will this get VMware up and running with 4.13? If not what is the best course of action other than waiting? Trying to downgrade kernel+modules?

Will this also require ams1's and orson's patches?
I'm away from my computer but will test the new patch as soon as I can. Thanks for the update!

same issue as @khau.

# uname -r

# ls /usr/lib/modules

can't find `version.h`. Upgraded to VMware-Workstation-Full-12.5.7-5813279.x86_64.bundle which fixed that issue, also had to downgrade to libpng-1.6.28-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

My apologies - I wasn't notified of your response.
# uname -r
# 4.12.8-2-ARCH
# ls /usr/lib/modules
# 4.12.8-2-ARCH extramodules-4.12-ARCH

The problem persists across restarts. Please let me know if I can supply any more information.

@khau can you show me the result of `uname -r` and `ls /usr/lib/modules/` ?
maybe you need a restart after your 'linux-headers' installed/upgraded.

I've run into a problem (had it for some time now) compiling under the lastest kernels.

# Failing to find /lib/modules/4.12.8-2-ARCH/build/include/linux/version.h
# ...
# W115: Failed to build vmmon. Failed to execute the build command.
# ...
# W115: Failed to build vmnet. Failed to execute the build command.
# ...

Attempted with and without ams1's and orson's fixes for VMware Workstation (each tried independently and simultaneously).

Building on:
Arch Linux 4.12.8-2 (x86_64)
Using headers:
core/linux-headers 4.12.8-2

Let me know if you need any more information on how I've been attempting to build, etc.
