Installing VMware Player on Slackware based Linux.

Posted 03-09-2012 at 02:45 AM by stretchedthin

Seems there are a couple tricks to installing VMware on a Slackware based system. The question was raised on the forum by a member who was stuck and it needed an answer. So I downloaded from "https://www.vmware.com/tryvmware/", ran into a wierd problem with the installer just aborting and not giving much in the way of clues, as to why. Some google-fu saved the day and this is how it is done.

Uploaded a video to youtube with all the details.

Hello again, LQ!

Hi.

I've been busy. Very busy.

I managed to find time to boot up my Ultra5 the other day. It complained that the clock was wrong...apparently someone turned the clock forward 118 days. Sigh...in all truth, the sparc was in storage for 115+ days, and since I finally got settled into an apartment in San Antonio, I've had time to set things back up. The Ultra5 now has a friend...an Ultra2 that was given to me by a coworker at Rackspace. He never used it much, and...

Well, nobody said Linux is boring - well, I did'nt anyway.

This one's for all those Archers out there. So, here's a new install,and you want to update the system before proceeding. Good practice, so you enter

residue?

Posted 03-07-2012 at 09:23 AM by hplc

A while ago i went away while my apartment was being getting a facelift, new kithen, new carpets and such. When i came back the entire thing looked really good, apart from one thing, there were stains of paint on the floor, and lots of it. I decided to get rid of some stains every day. Then it hit me, "stains of paint, material on the floor that does not have any function but just crap and leftovers"

The human DNA contains that as well, residue from the human evolution,...
