Re: how fix error vmware on fedora 25 ?!

"Failed to build vmnet. Failed to execute the build command."

seems that vmware is trying to build its kernel module, but can't.

You need to install the following packages into your Fedora:

run this as root:
dnf install make kernel-devel dkms gcc automake autoconf xorg-x11-drv-vmware open-vm-tools kernel-headers

and then try again what you were trying to do.

Re: how fix error vmware on fedora 25 ?!

Sajjad, pls attach the logfile /tmp/vmware-root/vmware-6048.log here , instead of using "quick reply", use the proper "POST REPLY" button, that gives you more choices, to attach a file.

Question to you, have you ever tried VirtualBox ? I find it much better than VMware. (and it's free).
And much easier to install. (just 2 steps).

Re: how fix error vmware on fedora 25 ?!

working fine after patch modules guid from link :
https://bugfixes.promisedev.com/
http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=1914
Code:
/ *************************************************
VMWare kernel >= 4.9 Unofficial patch script by D7X
(Fixes the VMWare vmnet / vmmon failed issue on kernel 4.9)

See log file /tmp/vmware-root/vmware-2469.log for details.
Steps:

1) Install vmware on kernel >= 4.9 using VMWare bundle script
2) Run this script (chmod +x vmw_patch.sh; ./vmw_patch.sh)

Tested on 4.9.0-kali1-amd64:
Linux version 4.9.0-kali1-amd64 (devel@kali.org) (gcc version 6.3.0 20170124 (Debian 6.3.0-5) ) #1 SMP Debian 4.9.6-3kali2 (2017-01-30)

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
Fixes the vmnet/vmmon failure on kernel 4.9 where VMWare failes to start services and prompts an error message similar to this:
Unable to start services. See log file /tmp/vmware-root/vmware-3823.log for details.
