VMware install Devuan ascii

Tons of problems, the latest being kernel headers 4.9.0-11-amd64

Installed VMware-Workstation-Full-15.5.1-15018445.x86_64.bundle  went well.
Launching VMWare from apps menu fails, from terminal it produces depends error, the latest one being the kernel headers.
Those headers are not in the repo, apt upgrade and update no joy...

No idea what awaits after I solve this, if it is solvable

Info:
Linux devuan 4.9.0-11-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.189-3+deb9u2 (2019-11-11) x86_64 GNU/Linux

If there is another way to get VMware installed, I would appreciate any clues, thanks...

Kernel 4.9.0-11 isn#t the latest kernel, that is -12. The following headers are in the repos:

Re: VMware install Devuan ascii

installed /usr/src/linux-headers-4.9.0-12-amd64

Build environment error! A required application is missing and Modconfig cannot continue. xzCheck the log for more info"

Yes, the "xz" was there, no log specified

No joy...

Re: VMware install Devuan ascii

Make sure build-essential is installed. (Yes, the package name is singular.)
