    Installing VMware

    Vmware player comes as an RPM, and I can't get it to install.

    I am entirely unclear as to whether I need something I haven't got yet, or whether it's a command string I don't know.

    How can I install this?

    Regards,

    I advise you install VM Server :

    Why server instead of Player? Are both free? Major differences?

    Because with Player you cannot create your own virtual machines; it can only run existing virtual machines.
    Not Workstation because it costs money.
    Server does not cost money and does allow you to create your own VMs.

    I downloaded Vmware server; got through the 'tar' sequence; got to vmware-server-distrib;

    But on

    Sudo vmware-install.pl

    I get

    No such command

    I ran a dir, and the file IS there.

    ??
