Unable to install VMware modules

– Please Write here your help request, –
I am unable to run Vmware. The installation runs successfully but when vmware is run it says it needs to compile and load vmnet and vmmon modules. The installation of these modules is failing every time.

  • Parrot version in use (if you are not aware of it, open terminal and type cat /etc/os-release | grep VERSION):

VERSION_ID=“5.0”
VERSION=“5.0 (LTS)”
VERSION_CODENAME=bullseye

I think this VMware patch via git didn’t recently work for me upon the upgrade to kernel 5.14.

git clone https://github.com/mkubecek/vmware-host-modules.git
cd vmware-host-modules
git checkout player-16.0.0
make
sudo make install
sudo /etc/init.d/vmware start

For VMware Workstation I had to download the proper, for me w16.1.2-k5.14 zip file to make, install, and start to get the vmnet and vmmon modules working.
