Default Debian etch Vmware Mui install

Hi All..

Having at stupid issue.
I'm running vmware-server 1.0.5 on at debian etch workstation.
The vmware-server 1.0.5 is running perfect, but I'm not able to install the vmware-mui :-(

when I run perl vmware-install.perl I accepts the eula and gets the following message .....
Quote:
EULA
Do you accept? (yes/no) yes

Thank you.

Installing the content of the package.

VMware Server must be installed on this machine for the VMware Management
Interface to work

Execution aborted.
And the vmware server and it's guest systems is running!
I'm able to connect to the server using vmware-server-console...
Have any one seen this issue before, and what todo for fix'ing it ??

Default Uname -a

hi Falco

Hop that you have a idea what's wrong ;-)

Code:
hostname:~# uname -a
Linux hostname 2.6.18-6-686 #1 SMP Sun Feb 10 22:11:31 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux
Fyi I hostname is NOT the real servername...

Looks ok.
Have you tried to install it as root?

Yes, I ran the installation as root, just one boot after I Installed the latest version of vmware-server 1.0.5 or something with the root user...
Strange ????
I properly have to read the vmware-installer.pl code and look into how the MUI installation verify that the vmware-server is installed and running on the computer....
But the easy way was asking around first, before reverse engineering the vmware install perl script...

Thumbs up Issue Solved :)

I searched the vmware-install.pl for
Code:
VMware Server must be installed
and ended up a line index "1793,14" and comment out that function.
Code:
  # Make sure VMware Server is installed
 # if ($vmware_version ne "vserver") {
 #   uninstall_file($gInstallerMainDB);
 #   error('VMware Server must be installed on this machine for the ' .
 #    vmware_product_name() . ' to work'
 #   . "\n\n");
#  }
This solved my issue and I have the MUI installed now and up and running..
