    tar xzf VMware-server-1.0.4-56528.tar.gz
    tar xzf vmware-any-any-update115a.tgz
    cd vmware-server-distrib/

    Does not work for AMD64. Starting vmware stopps with:
    vmware: xcb_xlib.c:82: xcb_xlib_unlock: Assertion `c->xlib.lock' failed.

    Any ideas?

    Wonder why the script wouldn't work for 64-bit Hardy? Would it work for 64-bit Gutsy?
