man I struggled a fricking bunch on this one. Found a good howto though.

from here

It seemed like I had no problems installing vmware-server version 1.0.2. Here is how i installed it:

Code:

sudo apt-get install build-essential xinetd vmware-server-kernel-modules

Download vmware server from: http://www.vmware.com/download/server/

Code:

wget http://download3.vmware.com/software/vmserver/VMware-server-1.0.2-39867.tar.gz

Code:

tar -zxvf VMware-server-1.0.2-39867.tar.gz

Code:

cd ./vmware-server-distrib

Code:

sudo ./vmware-install.pl

Went through the whole process installing vmware-server and got the errors which many are getting here.

Then I downloaded vmware-any-any-update109.tar.gz from: http://platan.vc.cvut.cz/ftp/pub/vmware/

Code:

wget http://platan.vc.cvut.cz/ftp/pub/vmware/vmware-any-any-update109.tar.gz

Code:

tar -zxvf vmware-any-any-update109.tar.gz

Code:

cd ./vmware-any-any-update109

Code:

sudo ./runme.pl

This will re-start the install process again with the correct settings

After done then type vmware in the terminal or run application

Code:

vmware

or

Hit – Alt+F2

then type – vmare
