Fix vmware workstation 12 launch problem (on Arch...maybe others)

January 21, 2017

linux vmware

VMware workstation did not launch. I forget the error (or lack there of).

sudo mv /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libz.so.1/libz.so.1 /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libz.so.1/libz.so.1.BAK

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libz.so.1 /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libz.so.1/libz.so.1
