I've installed vmware 12.5 on my arch linux, but when I tried to run a virtual machine, it showed an error pop up saying:
Could not open /dev/vmmon: No such file or directory. Please make sure that the kernel module `vmmon' is loaded.
After search on arch wiki, I ran into this page that, as I understand, informed me to configure the auto load of the vmmon module, following the instructions on this page. But even after manually creating the files at
/etc/systemd/system/, as informed in the instructions, I can't get it to work. I tried running:
vmware-modconfig --console --install-all
Before and after creating the files, but it throws:
sh: /etc/init.d/vmware: No such file or directory Unable to stop services
If anyone already faced this problem or know how to solve it, please help me, thanks!
