    [SOLVED] can't install vmware after corrupted install

    I started instalation from Automatix and since it asked me for serial key. Since I had'n have serial at that time i pressed cancel and Automatix has got frozen.
    I obtained a serial but i can't run installation anymore. When installing from Automatix i get this:

    Code:
    ....
    Početna konfiguracija paketa ...
    (Reading database ... 166818 files and directories currently installed.)
    Unpacking vmware-server (from .../vmware-server_1.0.4-1gutsy2_amd64.deb) ...
    dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/vmware-server_1.0.4-1gutsy2_amd64.deb (--unpack):
     subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 1
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     /var/cache/apt/archives/vmware-server_1.0.4-1gutsy2_amd64.deb
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    And installing vmware from official vmware webpage this:
    Code:
    The following VMware kernel modules have been found on your system that were 
    not installed by the VMware Installer.  Please remove them then run this 
    installer again.
    
    vmnet
    vmmon
    
    Execution aborted.
    Please help!!!

    You simply have to completely uninstall vmware. You can do it from Synaptic by using the Mark for Complete Removal function. And making sure you remove all the config files that you can see in the Status menu.

    Do a Search for vmware and you will see what's there. Right click for complete removing.

    Let us know how you are doing.
