After latest round of updates, workstation and player are not starting

billydv@Linux1 ~ $ /opt/vmware/bin/vmware
Loop on signal 11.
billydv@Linux1 ~ $ /opt/vmware/bin/vmplayer
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module": libcanberra-gtk-module.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Loop on signal 11.
billydv@Linux1 ~ $


Anyone have any ideas?

well, according to my system, libcanberra-gtk-module.so is from the libcanberra package (ironically enough, just as the name of the file hints at).

Code:
ct85711@Oate /usr/portage/profiles $ equery f libcanberra
 * Searching for libcanberra ...
 * Contents of media-libs/libcanberra-0.30-r5:
....
/usr/lib32/gtk-2.0
/usr/lib32/gtk-2.0/modules
/usr/lib32/gtk-2.0/modules/libcanberra-gtk-module.so
/usr/lib32/gtk-3.0
/usr/lib32/gtk-3.0/modules
/usr/lib32/gtk-3.0/modules/libcanberra-gtk-module.so -> libcanberra-gtk3-module.so
/usr/lib32/gtk-3.0/modules/libcanberra-gtk3-module.so
/usr/lib32/libcanberra-0.30
/usr/lib32/libcanberra-0.30/libcanberra-alsa.so
/usr/lib32/libcanberra-0.30/libcanberra-gstreamer.so
...


Note, you can find out what libraries a file is linking to, by using ldd, for example (this is a different file, but you get the idea)

Code:

ct85711@Oate /usr/portage/profiles $ ldd /opt/rar/rar
   linux-vdso.so.1 (0x00007fff4d601000)
   libstdc++.so.6 => /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/5.3.0/libstdc++.so.6 (0x00007f3a1c88f000)
   libm.so.6 => /lib64/libm.so.6 (0x00007f3a1c59f000)
   libgcc_s.so.1 => /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/5.3.0/libgcc_s.so.1 (0x00007f3a1c387000)
   libpthread.so.0 => /lib64/libpthread.so.0 (0x00007f3a1c167000)
   libc.so.6 => /lib64/libc.so.6 (0x00007f3a1bdcf000)
   /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00007f3a1cc17000)
