Vmware Player 6 on Fedora 20 Host - Virtual network Device fails

I have a Fedora 20 system on which I installed vmware player 6. When I run vmware I get a notice that modules need to be installed. After entering the root password it fails on Virtual Network Device.

This seems to be the right information in the logs, but I am still unsure of what is needed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

# uname -r

Thanks in advance.

Fedora 20 is not Officially supported Host OS to install VMware player 6.0 or Workstation 10.
But some people have tried it and it has worked. I would tell you, you have to try it at your own risk. It might or might not work,
Here's one link that might help you

Hi, I have FC20 running in VMware player / Workstation without any problems.

Which distribution did you download and what are your network settings in VMware?

Do you have gcc installed in Fedora? Can you try this:

/usr/bin/gcc

If you don't have gcc, try installing it like this:

#yum install gcc

If you are missing 'make' as well, try installing it as well:

#yum install make

@Gerwin.
The issue here is not running Fedora inside VMware player as guest OS.
Its about installing VMware player on a Fedora Machine as a Host OS.

@Abhilash Hb - doesn't really matter for the error that savone is getting - the build command itself (gcc/make) is failing.

Thanks for the input everybody, unfortunately I am unable to get it to work with the 3.13 kernel and no patches have been released yet.

Its not even supported in the first place.
