    VMplayer kernel issue(my solution)

    Hey guys, I noticed @ dec-2015 people are still having issues on another post. (Don't want to GD)
    I was looking around google and having issues finding it. I am posting my solution.

    This solution worked for me:


    uname -a
    Linux kali 4.0.0-kali1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.0.4-1+kali2 (2015-06-03) x86_64 GNU/Linux
    apt-get update
    apt-get install linux-headers-4.0.0-kali1-all-amd64

    The result:

    [snip ...]

    The following extra packages will be installed:
    linux-compiler-gcc-4.9-x86 linux-headers-4.0.0-kali1-amd64
    linux-headers-4.0.0-kali1-common linux-kbuild-4.0
    The following NEW packages will be installed:
    linux-compiler-gcc-4.9-x86 linux-headers-4.0.0-kali1-all-amd64
    linux-headers-4.0.0-kali1-amd64 linux-headers-4.0.0-kali1-common

    [snip ...]

    Afterwards, I was able to get on vmplayer just fine with no issues.

    Hopefully, this helped. Cheers.
