Hi,
I tried installing vmware ..but i some promlems in it i cud not able to complete the installation !!
this is what i did...

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential xinetd
it installed some packages and then prompted me to do this..
"Media change: please insert the disc labeled
'Ubuntu 5.10 _Breezy Badger_ - Release i386 (20051012)'
in the drive '/cdrom/' and press enter"
so i inserted the disc(mine was i486) and pressed enter it showed
99%[working]
and after few secs again showed the same prompt to insert the cd.so i justt pressed ctrl+C !!!!(stopped) then did..

sudo apt-get install gcc-3.4
then downloaded the vmware software from http://www.vmware.com/products/server/
extracted the folder to /tmp then i did..
cd /tmp
cd vmware-server-distrib
export CC=/usr/bin/gcc-3.4
till here everything was okay..then when i did ..
sudo ./vmware-install.pl
it asked the location for all files and folders to be instaled i accepted the default one's
but finally it says.....

"Unable to get the access rights of source file "./vmware-vix/bin".

Hiya

I don't know what is required to run the vmware in breezy... have you considered using dapper or edgy? It works fine there...
Regarding the cd-rom: If I were you I would comment out the cd-rom as apt source.

Have you thought about using WinSCP to copy the files from your Windows to your Linux system?

Vmware : server is a lot harder and more evil to install
i found it was killer to install on fedora / centos / suse
i gave up due to the number of errors but maybe over the weekend i will look at it again

just maybe

What you need on Dapper and Edgy to install vmware server is the following:
Code:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential xinetd gcc-3.4
I don't know about Breezy.... well, and I haven't succeeded yet getting VmWare to run on Feisty... that's what still keeping me from using it...

We have a tutorial for VMware server on Ubuntu 6.06: http://www.howtoforge.com/ubuntu_vmware_server

And this one is for Debian Sarge: http://www.howtoforge.com/debian_sar...e_server_howto
