Greetings fellow Manjaro enthusiasts,
for work purposes it’s required to use VMware, so I installed the packages through pamac.
Description of the problem:
Error messages starting the virtual machine:
Could not open /dev/vmmon: No such file or directory. Please make sure that the kernel module vmmon’ is loaded.`
What I have done to fix the problem:
Googeling around and installing this package: ncurses5-compat-libs 6.2-1
Still the same error message.
So I looked up in Arch wiki to read in the article about vmware and executed the solution in the paragraph “Module Issues: /dev/vmmon not found”
Somehow it didn’t worked out and I checked the status with:
sudo systemctl status vmware.service
The reply is:
● vmware.service - VMware daemon

Sep 04 20:45:41 0x00 systemd: vmware.service: Failed with result ‘exit-code’.
Problem not solved. I don’t know what else to do to fix it…
Anyone an idea?
