I have 5.0.2 running. To get it running at all, I first had to do a tweak to the /usr/bin/vmplayer file to allow VMPlayer to run in Fedora 19.
1. Open /usr/bin/vmplayer in nano or other text editor of your choice, using sudo or su.
2. Look for the lines that read as follows:
export PRODUCT_NAME="VMware Player"
3. Add the following after the above lines:
# Makes vmware player more compatible with Fedora 19.
4. Save the file. You should be able to at least get the program running after that.
You also very likely will experience an error with building two of the required modules in Fedora 19 as VMPlayer tries to build them. There are two patches out there on the net that fix the problems with vmnet and vmblock with 3.10 kernels, if you are experiencing those problems. I did not write the patches and do not recall who did or where I got them, but here they are:
Here is what you have to do with these patch files:
1. Go to /lib/vmware/modules/source and copy the vmnet.tar and vmblock.tar archives to the desktop. Also put the patch files on your desktop.
2. Extract files for VMNet and VMBlock TAR files to desktop. You will have two folders when done.
3. Just cd into vmnet folder on desktop in terminal and run
patch -p1 < ~/Desktop/vmnet.3.10.patch
4. Just cd into vmblock folder on desktop in terminal and run:
patch -p1 < ~/Desktop/vmblock.3.10.patch
5. Put the folders back into the archives sitting on your desktop, rename the original TAR files in the folder mentioned in step 1, and put your modified tar files into the same source folder.
After that, VMWare Player should run and rebuild the modules in Fedora 19 with 3.10 kernels.
Hope this helps.
