  • 1.  upgrade 17.5.2 under ubuntu 24.04

    Posted May 15, 2024 12:52 PM

    My OS is Ubuntu 24.04 and yesterday the system ask me to update VMWare Workstation Pro 17.5.1 to 17.5.2. But after the installation, when I click on the application, the Vmware KernelModule Updater launch, I clic Install. And then I get the message "Unable to Install all modules".

    I get the same error when I do the update 17.5.0. to 17.5.1, but using the repository of mkubecek, I success with the update. But there is no repository for 17.5.2. 

    I waiting for a solution in order to do the update to 17.5.2.

    I have the same problem with a new install of Workstation 17.5.2 on both Ubuntu 24.04 and a fresh install of Rocky Linux 9 (to check if it were an Ubuntu-specific issue).

    I success by using mkubecek vmware-host-modules-workstation-17.5.1 while I do the upgrade to 17.5.2. I do the same as when I do the upgrade 17.5.0 to 17.5.1. 

    After having done the upgrade 17.5.2 and when launching vmware workstation, the Vmware KernelModule Updater is launching and failed. So I reapply mkubecek vmware-host-modules-workstation-17.5.1 (for those who haven't the file yet : wget https://github.com/mkubecek/vmware-host-modules/archive/workstation-17.5.1.tar.gz) after unzip the file, go to the directory do : make  then sudo make install, and after like the doc create the tar files (tar -cf vmnet.tar vmnet-only ; tar -cf vmmon.tar vmmon-only) next copy the files (sudo cp -v vmmon.tar vmnet.tar /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/) next rebuild (sudo vmware-modconfig --console --install-all).

    Now launch vmware workstation pro, and when you look the version, it would show 17.5.2.

    it works for me
