    Re: Virtualization Ubuntu 9.04

    I'm having trouble getting VMware to work properly in Jaunty. I (mostly) followed the instructions from the first post, aside from running the vmware-install.pl before I found out that there'd be a problem...

    I got it to open up and run, but as soon as I try to power on my first virtual machine, it gives my my first error as a gui:

    Code:
    Version mismatch with vmmon module: expecting 168.0, got 161.0.
    You have an incorrect version of the `vmmon' kernel module.
    Try reinstalling VMware Workstation.
    I'm lost as to how to fix this. I'm (trying to) run VMware 6.0.4 Workstation.

    As another aside, I have serial number through work for 6.0.4. Will that number activate 6.5 or whatever the version is that people have working on Jaunty?

    Thanks a bunch

    Don't get me wrong, 1.x is an awesome product, not as happy with 2.x.

    KVM and virtualbox are both easier to install and maintain.

    If you need to file share, learn a network protocol (ssh (scp) , samba, ftp, nfs, http) or use a flash drive.
    VMware was a dream in 8.04 and I can't leave it, my VM's are already in VMware format, I tried converting one to vortual box but it hangs on boot...

    What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
    kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include] /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.28-11/arch/x86/include

    The path "/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.28-11/arch/x86/include" is an existing
    directory, but it does not contain at least one of these directories "linux",
    "asm", "net" as expected.

    The path "/lib/modules/2.6.28-11-generic/build/include" is a kernel header file
    directory, but it does not contain the file "asm/page.h" as expected.

    Okay I have decided to stick with VMWare. Virtualbox opened up more problems which I don't need.

    I just need to get a bridged network working again on VMware and stop to SOB from stealing my modifier keys. Once I get VMWare working on 9.04 I will never update again. I had 8.10 and everything was perfect, updating to 9.04 was the biggest mistake of my life!
    Can someone help me with my VMWare woe's please?

    You basically have two problems :

    1. VMWare does not support Ubuntu 9.04. So I suggest you downgrade to 8.04, which is a LTS release, or a supported OS.

    2. You are asking an extremely technical question about a third party application that appears to be beyond the kowledge of this community.

    Personally VMWare runs for me on 9.04 with essentially the same instructions as 8.10. It does not run well and while guests are booting my computer makes a long high pitched very irritating beep. Once the guest is done booting it all seems to be working normally, although I have not extensivly tested my guests.

    Personally, at this piont, I have no need to run VMWare, KVM and Virtualbox both better integrate into Ubuntu and both seem to work better (for me) then VMWare.

    Personally, I do not like the direction VMWar Server 2.0 is moving, 1.x is for me a much better product.

    Becasue of those issues I am guessing community members are slowy moving away from VMWare, although I sure there are some very knowledgable people using VMWare.

    Your other option is to post on the VMWare Forums :

    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

    I just finished reinstalling Ubuntu to 9.04. I'll go insane if I have to reinstall again. I have even more problems with Virtualbox than VMWare.

    imho OpenVZ http://sunoano.name/ws/public_xhtml/openvz.html should be mentioned since it is exremly fast and easy to setup because, for Debian and Ubuntu, there are .debs available
