    vmserver on gutsy via repository

    when I try to install vmserver it dies due to uninstallable dependencies.. does anyone know how to fix this?

    Code:
    mark@desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install vmware-server
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    
    Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
    the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
    that package should be filed.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:
    
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
      vmware-server: Depends: vmware-server-kernel-modules but it is not installable
                     Depends: libssl0.9.7 but it is not installable

    I don't but I have lately, since Feisty, downloaded the binary from the vmware.com site and it has never failed to work correctly. Always used the same old lisence number they gave me months and months ago.

    The download worked fine on both 64- and 32-bit Feisty and Gutsy installs.

    Hi,

    Thanks for that. I'll go that route.

    Incidentally I know exactly what caused this error though. I copied in the Feisty Cannonical repository to my sources.list when I am running Gutsy,
