I am trying to install vmware on feisty. The instructions on how to forge are identical to other sites. I am to download and unpack vmware, I have used tar -xzf as instructed, and then
but there is no vmware-install.pl
I am in the directory vmware_server_distrib.
There are eight directories, and a file called FILES.
In the file called FILES there is a listing of all of the files - wouldn't you know it!
It lists a link, vmware-install.pl, which points to bin/vmware-uninstall.pl, which is odd. The link is not there, and running bin/vmware-uninstall.pl doesn't help either - it just tries to uninstall what isn't there.
I have downloaded it more than once, unpacked it more than once, there is no such thing in the entire directory structure of the unpacked software. What's the trick?
