Default download vmware server onto my ubuntu server

Hey all,

On a previous post, I asked if it was possible to install vmware server onto a command line ubuntu server.

Well, I am trying to figure out how and cannot do it.

I am trying to download and install onto my Ubuntu server through my Putty SSH, and for the life of me can't seem to even download vmware server 2.

can anyone help,

Thanks

Heeter

1) Install package requirements (compiler, kernel headers,...)
2)Download the package from VMWare's site
Code:
$ wget http://download3.vmware.com/software/vmserver/VMware-server-1.0.6-91891.tar.gz
3)Uncompress the file
Code:
$ tar xzvf VMware-server-1.0.6-91891.tar.gz
4) Move to the install directory
Code:
$ cd vmware-server-distrib
5) Run the installation program
Code:
$ sudo ./vmware-install.pl

Hey, Great, Thanks


I kept getting 403 forbidden of that address, so I downloaded it directly from their site, and put it in my webserver. I also needed the 64bit version (I forgot to mention that, my bad)

so now it looked like this:
Code:
$sudo wget http://hcctech.ca/data/VMware-server-2.0.0-122956.x86_64.tar.gz

I continued with the extraction and started the install.

I got other problems coming up now. It is not installing.


But thanks for showing me the wget command.

Thanks

You're welcome. Paste the errors and we'll help you to finish the installation (probably you didn't install all the requirements).

I am having a problem completing the install:

1- I cannot install the linux-headers-'uname -r'

Code:
E: Could not find the package linux-headers-'uname -r'
I forgot to mention this is Ubuntu8.10Server 64bit Server tower. I am using vmware-server-2.0.0-122956.x86_64.tar.gz

2- I cannot recompile the kernel about halfway through the vmware install

Code:
What is the location of the directory of the C header files that match your running 
kernel? [/usr/source/linux/include]

the path "/usr/source/linux/include" is not an existing directory
Looks like problem 2 might be related to problem 1.


3- Why cannot I copy'n'paste into/out of putty? Is there a better SSH client that I can use?


Thanks a million, for your help,

Heeter

It must be linux-headers-uname -r, not linux-headers-'uname -r'.

To paste something into PuTTY, you just need to right-click. To copy something from PuTTY, all you have to do is mark it.

I found the key, it is to the left of the number 1 on the keyboard. " `", not " ' "

I was using the quotation mark instead, Thanks Falko.

I will try that with again, with the right click.

Thanks again, Falko.
