After the first installation, please:

1) install the appropriate headers package(s) for your installed kernel(s): linux-headers for default kernel, linux-lts-headers for LTS kernel...

2) reboot or load vmw_vmci and vmmon kernel modules (modprobe -a vmw_vmci vmmon)

3) Enable the services you need:

  • vmware-networks.service: to have network access inside VMs

  • vmware-usbarbitrator.service: to connect USB devices inside VMs

  • vmware-hostd.service: to share VMs on the network

Installed under 4.4.113 and it doesn't work. I get:

modprobe -a vmw_vmci vmmon

modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'vmmon': Exec format error

I've been googling and not found a solution.

Thanks
