    VMware installation

    Hi,
    i have installed kali linux version 5.18.0-kali7-amd64
    i tried to install VMware workstation player (free version VMware-Player-16.1.2-17966106.x86_64.bundle and VMware-Player-15.5.7-17171714.x86_64.bundle) without any success

    i have a problem with the modules vmmon and vmnet. They need to be compiled and i don't know how to do that
    i tried a lot of actions issued from internet without any success.

    I need your help
    Thanks

    Remove VMWare and start again, once removed..

    You first need to install the correct linux kernel headers to your system

    sudo apt install kernel-headers-`uname -r` kernel-devel-`uname -r`

    then install the VMWare bundle and then, upon first boot of VMWare it should compile and build the needed functions vmmom and vmnet
