Hello guys,
Have anyone tried to install VMWare WS on 5.9 STD? I did but failed but

it installed on 5.9 Light with no problemas!

Please post some mini howto's and/or tips.

Thanks.

Here's some text:

Making sure services for VMware Workstation are stopped.

Stopping VMware services:
   Virtual machine monitor                                             done

Configuring fallback GTK+ 2.4 libraries.

In which directory do you want to install the theme icons?
[/usr/share/icons]

The file /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/mimetypes/application-x-vmware-vm.png
that this program was about to install already exists.  Overwrite? [yes]

The file

after overwrites it continue to instal:

=====================================================================
Starting VMware services:
   Virtual machine monitor                                             done
   Blocking file system:                                               done
   Virtual ethernet                                                    done
   Bridged networking on /dev/vmnet0                                   done
   Host network detection                                              done
   Host-only networking on /dev/vmnet1 (background)                    done
   DHCP server on /dev/vmnet1                                          done
   Host-only networking on /dev/vmnet8 (background)                    done
   DHCP server on /dev/vmnet8                                          done
   NAT service on /dev/vmnet8                                          done

The configuration of VMware Workstation 6.0.4 build-93057 for Linux for this
running kernel completed successfully.

You can now run VMware Workstation by invoking the following command:
"/usr/bin/vmware".

Enjoy,

--the VMware team

============================================================

Now Invoking the command "/usr/bin/vmware & "

This what vector say

root:# process 5112: Attempt to remove filter function 0xb5f725e0 user data 0x83e0640, but no such filter has been added
  D-Bus not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace


========================
It hangs and pressing the return key it exits.

any idea?

I Got It!

The easiest way to solve ALL of the Bugs that shipped

with the VL is to instal LINUX XP DESKTOP 2008!!!

The best distro that i have instaled and used.

I'll never install some spaghetti coded distro again  Cheesy

It seems to me somewhat ludicrous to denigrate something before receiving a response to a question, which may have been solved for you by the members of the forum. Furthermore, in your first post to the forum you made the statement that VL Lite was "strangely buggy", however, when questioned as to what the problems were there was no response from you. And lastly, the "spaghetti code" comment lacks any bite whatsoever as you do not explain what you mean and the problem could simply have been a faulty VMWare package, rather than the distro itself.

If you bother to ask questions at any Internet forum it is normal etiquette that you are expecting a response of assistance - rather than slyly using your questions to denigrate or rant. You are highly unlikely to get any help on any forum with such negative etiquette on your part.

LOL,, if you're going to pipe it, at least be good enough to share it Wink

And yes VMware does work well on VL 5.9 without issues as you mentioned, I am one of their insiders and have been for years Wink and VL is my first test target.. go figure.
and please try not to spam our forums with unnecessary ludicrous , we have a lounge for that.
thanks.

Personally I feel this should be moved / removed or edited because nothing here has been solved, as the topic states.
