Ubuntuers,
I am trying to install vmware-server but I cannot get the installation started because it cannot find the vmware-server package. Maybe something wrong with my actual setup of my repositories? I had uncommented the canonical repositories as described in the instalation posting for vmware but that did not work. Any suggestions?
I am running Ubuntu 8.04,
Kris

vmware-server is not in the repos. You get it directly from http://www.vmware.com/
You have to accept a license agreement and get an installation code emailed to you. Alternatively you can try virtual-box from the repos.

In case you are reading an old blog or tutorial, once upon a time, vmware-server was in the repos.
