    I got new ultrabook (Samsung ATIV Book 5 NP530U4E) preinstaled with Windows 8 (updated to 8.1) so I wanted to switch main OS to Fedora 20 (Heisenbug) and keep Windows in VM, just in case (e-banking sw and so).

    This walktrough is for everyone who would like to install VMware® Workstation 10.0.1 build-1379776 to x86_64 version of Fedora's latest Linux distro.

    Install GCC, dev tools and kernel headers

    # yum -y install gcc kernel-headers kernel-devel

    # ln -s /usr/src/kernels/$(uname -r)/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /usr/src/kernels/$(uname -r)/include/linux/version.h[/code]

    Start the VMWare installation

    # chmod -x VMware-Workstation-Full-10.0.1-1379776.x86_64.bundle
    # ./VMware-Workstation-Full-10.0.1-1379776.x86_64.bundle

    Apply patch for a bug with netfilter

    $ curl http://pastie.org/pastes/8672356/download -o /tmp/vmware-netfilter.patch
    $ cd /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source
    # tar -xvf vmnet.tar
    # patch -p0 -i /tmp/vmware-netfilter.patch
    # tar -cf vmnet.tar vmnet-only
    # rm -r vmnet-only
    # vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

    Start VMWare

    $ vmware

    or
    All Applications > System > VMWare Workstation
