I have successfully installed my licensed version (not open source, just in case they are different) of vmware to centos 7.  Then I opened VMware Player.  The final build failed, so i searched the internet and found two different patches.  I tried both, but neither worked.  Below is the error I get - gcc, gcc-c++, kernel-devel, kernel-headers, and make are installed...

It defaults to SVGA xorg driver. You need to install virtualbox guest additions for normal graphics (like vmware tools). They support DKMS to survive kernel upgrades.
