    Re: How to VMWare in Ubuntu 8.04

    I did this last week after upgrading to 8.04 and everything worked fine. Now, I can't get VMWare to run at all. Do I have to keep following these directions every time I want to use VMWare?

    No, however whenever the kernel is updated you will have to rerun vmware-config.pl

    Code:
    sudo vmware-config.pl
    Generally the default options will keep the configuration the same as it is was before.

    That did the trick. Thank you so much.

    Thanks, Kokopelli--that did the trick. I can confirm no need for the any-any patch in Hardy with vmware server 1.0.6.

    (I had one stumble on the way, & thought I'd mention it in case it's important, as well as embarrassing: Just before I found your reply, I found a procedure that included copying those files. I tried that, and vmware worked. But what you say about links is a good idea, so I did a rm -R on both copies in /usr/lib/vmware/lib, using -R because they were folders. I then realized the link targets are just files, and I'd deleted more than I should've. So I created folders with the appropriate names & then created the links. Vmware server runs, but I'm left wondering what else was in those folders before I deleted them, & whether I'll eventually need it.)
    Here's a koan for you: "I feel more like I did when I first got here than I do now."

    raydar:

    The only thing in the folders are the corresponding .so files. Not sure why VMWare does it that way but regardless you did not lose anything.

    Re: How to VMWare in Ubuntu 8.04

    I'm wondering whether anyone has gotten vmware player running in 8.04x64? I've tried running the regular install, just vm-install.pl followed by vm-config.pl using all default options and it won't start. I also tried the any-any-116 patch, but it looks like it's for server/workstation, not player:

    Code:
    vmware-any-any-update116$ sudo ./runme.pl 
    Updating /usr/bin/vmware ... failed
    Cannot open /usr/bin/vmware: No such file or directory
    Updating /usr/bin/vmnet-bridge ... No patch needed/available
    Updating /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-vmx ... No patch needed/available
    Updating /usr/lib/vmware/bin-debug/vmware-vmx ... No patch needed/available
    VMware modules in "/usr/lib/vmware/modules/source" has been updated.
    The modules all compile with the statement: "The module loads perfectly in the running kernel," but bridged networking on /dev/vmnet0 fails to load upon conclusion of the config.

    Any thoughts? I'd rather use the player version since it's free and you can make vm files on qemu. I'm a bit desperate because there's a piece of software I have to run on XP and I don't want to triple-boot. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Re: How to VMWare in Ubuntu 8.04

    I have tried to put this together and run into a problem I don't see any reports of...
    Code:
    root@uniqs:/home/ozz# /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl
    Making sure services for VMware Server are stopped.
    
    Stopping VMware services:
       Virtual machine monitor                                             done
       Bridged networking on /dev/vmnet0                                   done
       DHCP server on /dev/vmnet1                                          done
       Host-only networking on /dev/vmnet1                                 done
       DHCP server on /dev/vmnet8                                          done
       NAT service on /dev/vmnet8                                          done
       Host-only networking on /dev/vmnet8                                 done

    Unable to stop services for VMware Server
    
    Execution aborted.
    and if I restart the server then I can run config but it sends me back to
    Code:
    root@uniqs:/home/ozz# /etc/init.d/vmware start
    Starting VMware services:
       Virtual machine monitor                                            failed
       Virtual ethernet                                                   failed
       Bridged networking on /dev/vmnet0                                  failed
       Host-only networking on /dev/vmnet1 (background)                    done
       Host-only networking on /dev/vmnet8 (background)                    done
       NAT service on /dev/vmnet8                                         failed
    Thanks,

    Ozz.

    Re: How to VMWare in Ubuntu 8.04

    How should I go about updating VMware Server 1.0.5 to 1.0.6? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Edit: Well, I just basically installed VMware Server 1.0.6 like I was doing a fresh install, and when I booted up VMware Server it came up as 1.0.6 when I went to "Help" then "About", so I'm assuming things went well.
