Any ideas?
    Login: root
    Password: your root password (the one you use for sudo)

    HI, tried root and my sudo password and it didn't work. I also tried root and no password (I don't have a login password when I start Ubuntu but that didn't work either. I am sure I typed it in correctly. I use the same sudo password as my keyring password and that is OK so it hasn't changed. I also just tried a sudo gedit command and the same password worked fine.

    Now what?

    My VMware install went fine on Intrepid 8.10 and I can run the firefox sign-in screen (dealing with login issues seperately) by typing vmware into a terminal, but why didn't I get a menu start item for VMware? and how do I create one? what is the command ?

    rerun vmware-config.pl and set the administrative user to be your normal login.

    (The only other alternative is to set a root password so that you can log in as root. Ubuntu doctrine considers this to be Bad (tm) so you won't find any instructions for doing so on this site.)

    It's because vmware server console isn't a program anymore.

    However, if you add a menu item that uses the command "vmware" it will create a link (like a shortcut in windows) that will load your browser pointing to the right web address.

    Got it, thanks. Ran Windows setup but then messages came up saying not enough resources. It's a pretty old PC so I'll have to try it on a newer one. I was using it as a test case before I mucked up my production PC.

    Thanks for this help folks.

    i can't get this to work :/

    it installed successfully, but can't run vmware-config.pl

    it says: unable to build the vmmon module.

    i've installed and reinstalled linux-headers-generic (uname -r show's me generic at the end)

    thanks o/

    edit

    i've tried just now installing the linux-headers-386 and server, but didn't work either

    You need the version numbers from uname -r in the command as well, e.g.

    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.28-11-generic

    That's why the howto uses the command that substitutes the results of uname -r in it.

    i tried that and got "the newest version of linux headers is already installed" (something like that heh)

    then i used --reinstall, it reinstalled, and when running vmware-config.pl i get:

    None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server is suitable for your
    running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
    your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)?

    i type yes, and the following message appears:

    What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
    kernel? [/lib/modules/2.6.28-11-generic/build/include]

    i press enter, it tries to do something, and at the end:

    Unable to build the vmmon module.
