Sometime in the last half year vmware-workstation stopped working on my Gentoo box. I am using the vmware overlay via layman.
When I try to start vmware-workstation (/etc/init.d/vmware start) I receive the following in /var/log/messages

Code:
Nov  8 08:04:20 fang kernel: [12781]: VMCI: shared components initialized.
Nov  8 08:04:20 fang kernel: [12781]: VMCI: host components initialized.
Nov  8 08:04:20 fang kernel: [12781]: VMCI: Module registered (name=vmci, major=10, minor=55).
Nov  8 08:04:20 fang kernel: [12781]: VMCI: Using host personality
Nov  8 08:04:20 fang kernel: [12781]: VMCI: Module (name=vmci) is initialized
Nov  8 08:04:20 fang kernel: /dev/vmmon[12796]: Module vmmon: registered with major=10 minor=165
Nov  8 08:04:20 fang kernel: /dev/vmmon[12796]: Using tsc_khz as TSC frequency: 2992968
Nov  8 08:04:20 fang kernel: /dev/vmmon[12796]: Module vmmon: initialized
Nov  8 08:04:20 fang /etc/init.d/vmware[12457]: ERROR: vmware failed to start


I am using the following three vmware packages:
app-emulation/vmware-modules-308.5.9
app-emulation/vmware-tools-10.1.6.5214329
app-emulation/vmware-workstation-12.5.9.7535481

I did try to re-emerge those three packages and still have the same issue.

Any ideas on how to get more debugging output or how to fix this? vmware-workstation did work for me earlier this year.
