Looking at VMWare Workstation, it does not seem to run on Fedora at all.
It seems to run on :

    Ubuntu 16.04
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1
    CentOS 7.1
    Oracle Linux 7
    openSUSE 13.2
    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12

So, I'm not sure how it was running on Fedora 25 to get messed up by an
upgrade to Fedora 26.
