Resolving Conflict with Kernel
The problem here is always the same `vmnet` and `vmmon` doesn’t start well or doesn’t start at all, You should find a PATCH deal with changes in vmmon.c and vmnet.c because something breaks or add some parameters to these files, you can found the following:
know what is your kernel version?: `uname -r`.
know your Vmware version or install the latest. `/usr/bin/vmware -v`
Try to find the PATCH for a specific KERNEL version and Vmware.
