Fixing Installation Problem in Kali Linux 2018.2 for VirtualBox and VMware Workstation. (gcc 7.3.0)

Hello All.

Previously I had migrated my testing machine into a new laptop.

Well, it is a refurbished laptop, Dell E7240. After finish installing Kali, I proceed to install VMware player. Unfortunately it does not running and keep asking for location of gcc 7.3.0.

After giving up, I tried installing VirtualBox. Surprisingly it also failed.

Both keep asking for location of gcc 7.3.0.

So the solution that I discover is by running "sudo apt install virtualbox-dkms".

After reboot, I just try to run the VMware again, it now able to run.

Note: The way I did is after installing the virtualbox-dkms, I uninstall both virtualbox and vmware, restart the OS (I use Kali 2018.2) and install vmware again. It works flawlessly.

Good Luck and Cheers!
