VMWare Workstation Not Starting on Kali linux


WHen I start VMWare Workstation 12 is says "A compatible gcc version was not found", so it's looking for GCC version 6.4.0, I point it to gcc-6 in my /usr/bin/ folder, as i've done before and it's always worked, when it tried to install the gcc-6, it goes through but is unable to start the services, and it's always at "Virtual Network Device".

Code:
:~# /etc/init.d/vmware restart
Stopping VMware services:
   VMware Authentication Daemon                                        done
   VM communication interface socket family                            done
   Virtual machine communication interface                             done
   Virtual machine monitor                                             done
   Blocking file system                                                done

   Blocking file system                                                done
   Virtual ethernet                                                   failed
   VMware Authentication Daemon                                        done
Here is the log file for that:

Did you (OP) mean this? Note apt steps 1&2. (Also, #4 and below here)

Maybe there's some verbose debugging switch options you could add to the make (in next-to-last line in your log posted in #1)

Welcome to LQ (Is this a commercial product that includes vendor support?)
