    Tried to follow the steps on breezy. It didn't work, tried to run the installation script again, same error. Here's what I cut and pasted from Terminal. (see attached.)

    Nah... I just tried that link in MSIE and it just says "Cannot Find Server". Firefox redirects to Microsoft's web page by itself.

    Why did you press "n"? Doing this terminates the install.
    Just press "y", and go on. There's nothing wrong with compiling, it needs to be compiled because vmware doen't support ubuntu as an host-os.

    EDIT: sorry I didn't read the whole thing.Anyway.

    Just makee sure you have gcc3.4 installed and do
    Code:
    export CC=/usr/bin/gcc-3.4
    before you execute the command.

    erm... my own company name... I have a sideline business that involves fixing borked ms-windows boxes... quite profitable... I only do referrals.

    You know you can put n/a in that field...

    [OT aside here. Please DO NOT reply to this]

    If they let me, they end up with an Ubuntu dual boot setup with Ubuntu for browsing and ms-windows for their other stuff. Otherwise, I leave them with a Knoppix cd and show them how to browse the web with it (saving data to USB key drives (setup as a persistent home)) and do Gaim for IM etc.. I have had some call backs to install Linux properly after they've had a play with Knoppix. I've even had people call me back and let me know they've gone off and installed Linux themselves.

    The log says it cannot compile because the wrong gcc is used. This is easily solved.
    for breezy users
    You will need to enter this first before starting the install script:
    Code:
    export CC=/usr/bin/gcc-3.4
    Also make sure that gcc-3.4 is indeed installed
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gcc-3.4

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

    Hi I just got the answer for not running VMWare as root...

    after copying the libgcc and libpng files as I explained in the first page do the following:

    sudo chmod 777 /home/"your home directory"/.vmware/preferences

    It works for me now I just type in the terminal:

    "vmware"

    And vmware starts

    Cheers

    Excellent post!

    Very clear and it all worked first time.

    All I have to do now is work out how to connect to the internet some time in the next 30 days so I can activate XP.

    You are definitely a .

    I followed your guide but it failed. All I get is this

    A previous installation of VMware software has been detected.

    Failure

    Execution aborted.

    dicecca@dicecca-desktop:~/Desktop/vmware-server-distrib$


    This is a 2 day old install of dapper. I believe i have everything I need installed

    Do you have another VMWare product installed? You can't have VMPlayer and VMServer on the same machine. I don't know about workstation.

    If you want to clean out any other products you can run /usr/bin/vmware-uninstall.pl.

    If the errors are caused by a failed previous installation attempt, I don't know if that script will be there/work, but you can try anyway.

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

    Hey man! excelent post! This is my first post and I'm kind of newbie to all this but i'ts nice to see this community. It's great to be part of this.

    Ok here's my problem: The installation went Ok, the only thing that bothers me is that I have to run the program from the directory itself because I go "vmware" in the console and nothing happens. It says that there is no such command.

    Anyway, I start the program and make the virtual machine and try to install Win Me, and it seems that I don't have the keyboard available.

    Any clue on this?

    PS: sorry about my english... I'm working on that too

    edit:
    I'ts ok now!!!just have to click on the screen of the virtual machine. I'ts installing right now and I'll keep you informed.

    Long Live Rock 'n Roll!!!
