        tar -xvzf vmware-update-2.6.27-5.5.7-2.tar.gz
    
        cd vmware-update-2.6.27-5.5.7-2
    
        ./runme.pl
    it's working, thanks!!! =D

    edit

    no wait

    i used the patch, then tried vmware-config.pl again, it was all perfect, it says that vmware was successfully

    but when trying to run the program, a window appears and then closes
    and with the terminal i get:

    vdfritz@vdfritz-laptop:~$ vmware
    kde4-config: /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libgcc_s.so.1/libgcc_s.so.1: version `GCC_4.2.0' not found (required by /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6)

    Post-install configuration. Last, before running vmware :
    Code:

    sudo cp /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libgcc_s.so.1
    sudo cp /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0 /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libpng12.so.0

    Re: HowTo: Windows (XP) on Ubuntu with VMWare Server

    I got through the installation process, but when I went to run 'vmware' these are the errors I got...


    Code:
    root@UNKNOWN:/home/heroin/Desktop/vmware-server-distrib# vmware
    Launching VMware Web Access using /usr/bin/xdg-open

Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)

    Re: HowTo: Windows (XP) on Ubuntu with VMWare Server

    After installing XP on server. If i want to use VMware player(which is faster) then would i will be able to have the same system with same setting that i made in server. More specifically, player allows to have only one shared folder while server allows unlimitedly(i suppose). So would i will be able to have same no of shared folder with player as much i am having in server?

    hI

    the big draw for me with linux was virus resistance, this is probably a silly question but can windows get a virus when running in a virtual machine mode on linux?

    Of course it can, but it wont spread into your linux system.

    Hello, I'm an trying to unpack the Vmware Server on Ubuntu 64bit unsuccessfully.

    Here is the command

    The output gives seems to get to over 90%, then it fails at the following.
    .
