I'm running a Quad Core 64 bit Intel. I'm testing several VM software. I've tried XEN, KVM and now I'm tying out VMware. I've had success with VMware on Centos 5.2-64bit. It installs flawlessly with no problems, and I've been able to create serveral vm's (Windows XP, Vista, Centos and Ubuntu). They work perfectly.
With Ubuntu 8.04 64-bit, I've installed Kubuntu-desktop. All the updates have b een applied, kernel updated. I installed VMware 2.0 from tar file, Again it was straight forward. I came accross a problem in the installation, and that is when
the installation performed the VMware-config. It gave me the following message:
None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server is suitable for your
running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [no] yes
Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.
Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "4.2.3", while you are trying to use
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.2.4". This configuration is not recommended and
VMware Server may crash if you'll continue. Please try to use exactly same
compiler as one used for building your kernel. Do you want to go with compiler
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.2.4" anyway? [no]
When I answered yes, it compiled properly, no error message.
I then proceeded to create my first vm, Centos 5.2-64bit. I created the vm, installed the software with no apparent problems. When it did the first install, on boot up it got stuck in the undev portion, frozen. I tried it a couple of times with the same result.
Anyone come accross the same problem?
Was there a solution?
Is it possible to install gcc 4.2.3 on Centos 5.2?
Can it co-exist with gcc 4.2.4?
Thanks in advance:
