Ok, I tried looking for VMware in the repos. I found the kernel headers for VMware but not VMware Player itself.
I installed the kernel headers, but VMware is still reporting that it can't find them.
I installed the Sabayon source code. I already had the kernel headers installed, at least what I think are the kernel headers (linux-headers?). Fortunately once I installed the Sabayon source code it worked.
So for review:
- I installed linux-headers (actually I think it was there by default, but I'm playing it safe and saying I installed it)
- I installed the Sabayon source code for my kernel (sabayon-source)
That's all it took to get VMware Player working!
