July 2020 VMWare Player and Workstation won’t compile their modules on kernel 5.7.6-201.fc32.x86_64 Fedora 32

So just had to downgrade my running Kernel to use an earlier one using:

grubby --set-default /boot/vmlinuz-5.6.19-300.fc32.x86_64

I couldn’t get the the vmware modules to compile on 5.7.6-201.fc32.x86_64. These things change rapidly and they will probably make an update that works shortly but just in case you are wondering here are the versions I had trouble with on the aforementioned kernel

VMware-Player-15.5.2-15785246.x86_64.bundle
VMware-Workstation-Full-15.5.6-16341506.x86_64.bundle
