    Re: How to VMWare in Ubuntu 8.04

    hi guys i've been reading this and i have a few questions, one is, would vmware have any kind of crash with the kvm implementation in hardy, and also what about those lines for 64 bits that are posted at the beginning of the thread, could someone finally clarify them?? are they required or not, are they dangerous or not, cos i got so confused after reading what u all wrote.

    And to end it, i wanna know if the any-to-any is needed for vmware 6.0.3 and 6.5 beta

    Does this method include support for AMD-V and IVT (vmx flag)?

    Re: How to VMWare in Ubuntu 8.04

    i am trying to open my vm and i get the following error message:

    Unable to add virtual machine "/home/matthew/vmware/XP/Windows XP Professional/Windows XP Professional.vmx" to the inventory: No permission to perform this operation

    i checked the permissions to the vm's parent directory and the only thing i updated was read and write access for group permissions (which was set to just read only) but that didn't do the trick...

    any ideas?

    Try this:

    Code:
    sudo vmware
    and then see if you can add the VM. If you can then, exit, go back and run vmware from the icon.

    Also, the vmx file needs to be executable.

    i looked at the permissions for the vmx file and it says root is the owner- so i tried applying permissions from the parent folder (which is owned by my user account) to it's subfolders but that didn't take effect- how can i make the entire vm's folder (including all subfolders and files) owned by my user account? thanks.

    sudo chown -R user.user /home/matthew/vmware/XP/
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

    That should be a ":" between user:user, not a period?
