I'm trying to install VM Player 12.5.4.  I downloaded it about a year ago, to install on my then Linux Mint (I think it was 18.x).  I just switched to Bodhi and am trying to install it on my new OS.  However, it won't run after the install completes. It says that several modules need to be compiled and loaded into the running kernel, which I recall from my install on Mint.  It runs thru all the steps fine, until the end where it's supposed to actually start (Starting VMWare Services).  I tried rebooting, but that didn't help.  I downloaded the current version but it complains about not working on my old CPU, which the 12.5 doesn't do.  With the current version of VMPlayer, 14.1.1, I told it to ignore the CPU and install anyway, which completed just fine.  However, when trying to run my VM, it fails saying that the host doesn't support this or that.  So I uninstalled it and reinstalled the 12.5, but even on reinstall, it won't compile.  Here's the log output.  Any help would be appreciated.

Are the kernel headers still installed on your system? At a glance it looks like it is failing to find them.
