How to accept comand line user agreement???


I just installed vmware, try to run it and it says i must read the eula. I scroll down however I cant get any further?

i press yes, y, enter, end, etc.

Any ideas??


p.s.
I'm getting on with Suse quite well so far! I love how the tarbells are handled, and the home directory keeps me self contained! I can actually install stuff!!

perhaps use tab and space to respectively move to yes/no license agreement and agree.

ok, now what's this mean



Trying to find a suitable vmmon module for your running kernel.

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)? [yes] y

Setup is unable to find the "gcc" program on your machine. Please make sure it
is installed. Do you want to specify the location of this program by hand?
[yes]



is it becauseIm on 64bit??

there has to be a kernel module (driver if you like) for vmware to work. The vmware installer will build this module for you, but to do so it needs a compiler (GCC= Gnu C Compiler). Use your package manager to install GCC and try the vmware installation again.

Do you have gcc installed? The program is looking for a c compiler.

To see if you have GCC installed, you can use the command "gcc --version". This will tell you what version you have if you have it. They have a web:
http://gnu.gcc.org
