Whenever I try to run vmware-workstation-126.96.36.1998992-r2, it starts to load and then exits. Dmesg shows a segfault with libnvidia-glcore.so when it dies.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on VMware Workstation icon
2. Appears to be attempting to load for about 2 seconds
3. Exits with no displayed error message
VMware Workstation fails to load.
GUI for vmware workstation should load, and I should be able to access my VMs.
It was working fine. Noticed the problem after not using vmware for about a week, after a number of updates had been applied. I tried reverting back to a previous stable version of nvidia-drivers, but this did not help.

Results of emerge --info
vmware: segfault at 0 ip (null) sp bfaa9dec error 14 in libnvidia-glcore.so.290.10[b3d26000+1b9f000]
Please post the output of the command while run from a shell.
The icon points to /opt/vmware/bin/vmware, which does not return any output when run from a terminal session.
So can you run a gdb backtrace on that?

Is this still a problem?
