with Fedora 25 everything worked fine, even the upgrade from VMware Wkst 
12.5.6 to 12.5.7 with automatic recompilation of neccessary kernel modules
without my intervention ...
and the same when a kernel upgrade among other updates occured on Fedora 
25, everything worked fine ...

but the upgrade from F25 to F26 killed my VMware Workstation :-(
even the updates which occured after this upgrade didn't help ...
