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

    I have always used this to install VMware Server and its worked every single time:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r` gcc-3.4 xinetd xserver-xorg libxt6 libxrender1 libxtst6 libxi6 libdb2 openssl libssl-dev mc htop ssh
    Once all the libraries have been installed, all I do is start the VMware installer.

    Hope this helps....

    Well,

    As you can see from the output, It's after launching vmware. The install works just fine without any errors.

    I'll give it another try with the packages from eokorie's post. Allthough a bunch of them seem useluss ballast to me.

    Yeah, but that involves running vmware with root, wich is not a good idea.
    The link in my first post has a better solution.

    • Select the VMWare Server beta (for Linux)

    • Download VMware Server for Linux. (first mentioned, binary (.tar.gz) )
    what happens after the beta period finishes? cos it's not obvious from the email I got with my serial numbers:

    |Use the serial number(s) provided below to install and run multiple copies of VMware Server during the beta period:

    will vmware server remain free of cost?

    That's what I'd like to know...

    What did you put in the "company" field?

    It stays free, anyway it says so in the FAQ.
