    Re: HOWTO: Install VMware Server in Hardy (and later)

    From what I've seen, Server 2.0 does not support adding existing physical disks (in RC1). A compelling enough reason (as far as I'm concerned) to not migrate, even after it's gone gold. What's more, the Web interface is soooooooo sluggish and kinda locks to using firefox as a browser.

    I'll just stick to Server 1.0.x, thanks :/

    Re: HOWTO: Install VMware Server in Hardy (and later)

    I originally installed Vmware in Hardy using this script when the kernel was still at 24-16. I had not used it since all the kernel updates over the past few weeks, but it wasn't working today.

    The error message that came up told me to run the config script, but I kept getting an error message.

    Anyway, to skip ahead, I found that the folder for the 24-19 kernel does not have the "build" subdirectory that the other, older kernel folders have. (Sorry for the lack of accurate technical terms.)

    I got it working by rebooting into a 24-18 session and running the config script, but I'd like for it to work in the latest kernel.

    Any ideas as to why there is no "build" folder in my 24-19 kernel folder?

    (I am running 64-bit Hardy.)

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: HOWTO: Install VMware Server in Hardy (and later)

    I ran the script and it failed to install anything. I upgraded directly from Gutsy and had VMware Server installed on that. The Hardy upgrade killed it but left behind some files. If I try to use Synaptic to completly remove them it tells me all sorts of stuff will also be removed. Like a huge list of seemingly important files. Here's the out put from the script.

    Re: HOWTO: Install VMware Server in Hardy (and later)

    @brian96:
    Does this folder exist: '/lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/build/include'?

    It does for me with 2.6.24-19 and VMware needs that to compile vmmon.

    Please let me know. If it does exist and VMware doesn't install, please post the log here.

    @aikiwolfie:
    Can you please run 'vmware-server-distrib/bin/vmware-uninstall.pl' manually once 1.0.6 is extracted. You may have to do this manually.

    Then, upon success, try running my script again.

    Thanks for doing the hard work with this great script! I had VMware running in no time.

    No, that folder doesn't exist (although it does for all previous kernel upgrades since 24-16).

    I originally used your script to install it back when the kernel was at 24-16 and hadn't used VMWare since. I can't reproduce it now, but the error message I got when running "vmware" in a terminal said something about it not being configured properly and instructed me to run some config command. I ran it, and got an error message about not finding the kernel or something. That's when I noticed that the "build" folder and its subdirectories did not exist in my /lib/******24-19 folder. However, the build folder WAS in my 24-18 folder, so I rebooted into a 24-18 session, got the same initial error message, ran the recommended command, and everything worked out.

    So, I guess my issue is: why didn't that folder get created in my /lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/build/include directory when I let the Update Manager update my kernel?

    Thanks for your help.

    thanks altonbr...

    Really good script. I decided to install VMware again after a long time and was having some difficulty getting it to work. Your script did the trick in no time.

    script completed successfuly. still get this message upon attempting to run vmware:
    Code:
    $ vmware
    vmware is installed, but it has not been (correctly) configured
    for this system. To (re-)configure it, invoke the following command:
    /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl.

    No matter what I try I cannot get this to work in Heron. This is the diagnostics:

    What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running

    Re: HOWTO: Install VMware Server in Hardy (and later)

    I originally used your script to install it back when the kernel was at 24-16 and hadn't used VMWare since. I can't reproduce it now, but the error message I got when running "vmware" in a terminal said something about it not being configured properly and instructed me to run some config command. I ran it, and got an error message about not finding the kernel or something. That's when I noticed that the "build" folder and its subdirectories did not exist in my /lib/******24-19 folder. However, the build folder WAS in my 24-18 folder, so I rebooted into a 24-18 session, got the same initial error message, ran the recommended command, and everything worked out.

    So, I guess my issue is: why didn't that folder get created in my /lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/build/include directory when I let the Update Manager update my kernel?

    Thanks for your help.

    Just wanted to revisit this. Can anyone help me figure out why the /build/include directory didn't get created in my /lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic directory? Is that something the upgrade should have done, or is it something that is handled by the script?

    I am confused, because the directory did exist in my /lib/modules/2.6.24-18-generic directory, although I don't ever remember running altonbr's script since the "16" kernel release.

    Thanks in advance.
