First of all. The guide I am following: http://www.howtoforge.com/ubuntu_feisty_fawn_vmware_server_howto My question is about the patching part of the guide. I have no idea what to do or how to do it... And this from the VMware guide: Could someone tell me how i "run" the ./runme.pl? I have placed the folder on the desktop and un-tar'ed it there too. And how do i run the "vmware-config.pl" ? In a Terminal? and in what directory?? and... I'm only 3 weeks old with ubuntu but would like to have Win98 and WinXP installed too with VMware. When i open a Terminal and type: sudo ./runme.pl i just get: Code: [email protected]:~/Desktop/VMware-stuff/vmware-any-any-update109$ sudo ./runme.pl Unable to open the installer database /etc/vmware/locations in read-mode. Execution aborted.
