"Unable to change virtual machine power state: Internal error" is the message I receive when I try to load an existing virtual machine. (I'm running Sabayon 13.8, 64-bit, with all the latest updates).
I followed the instructions from the webpage https://wiki.sabayon.org/index.php?titl ... orkstation
to the letter, EXCEPT for the vmware.service script. On my computer, there is no /etc/rc.d/ directory. I found a vmware file in the /etc/init.d/ directory. So, in creating the vmware.service script, I substituted /etc/init.d/ for the non-existent /etc/rc.d/ directory. However, that didn't prove to help.
When I started VMWare Player, I received the following error message: "Failed to open device "/dev/vmci": No such file or directory. Please make sure that the kernel module 'vmci' is loaded. Module DevicePowerOn power on failed. Failed to start the virtual machine."
If anyone has figured out how to install VMWare into the most recent version of Sabayon (using systemd), I'd surely appreciate hearing about it.
