I don't know the file format but if you run 'file' on it it should tell you. To install the "bundle" package make the file executable. If it's some shell archive then adding the "--help" switch should show some info. Else check the VMware site or forum, they usually aren't that shabby providing installation information.

re: installing VMware .bundle file....

I was asking myself the same question, then looked inside the file and found it was just a shell script. I'm never sure of a persons experience, so pardon me if this is all basic stuff.

You'll need to verify permissions are set to correctly (i.e. execute bit is set), then install the program by entering "sudo ./vmware.bundle". If you're not aware, the "./" tells the shell to run the script from the current directly (since the directory I was running it from wasn't in my PATH).

HTH,

Andy

Lightbulb Bundle is a bash script file

On my xubuntu machine I went to the directory of the .bundle file in a terminal window and I typed:

sudo sh then the name of the file

...after that vmware's installation wizard appeared.

hope this helps.

Just installed VMware at my Ubuntu 8.10 distro. It's very easy, just do the following:

Go to the terminal -> Go to the location of the file

Type: >chmod +x <file name>

Now you type: >sudo ./<file name>

You should see an graphical VMware installer, just follow the steps. After the installation you'll find the launchers in you "System Tools" menu.

Good luck!

Hi All,

please bear with me, i am a complete Linux n00b, just installed openSUSE 11.4 RC2 on two of my machines this very weekend, worked like charm, all my hardware got supported immediately, very nice :-) ....

I then started installing VMWare Player 3.1.3 on one of the machines. Downloaded the .bundle , started a terminal window as root and could get installation to start by typing the command

sh VMware-Player-3.1.3-324285.x86_64.bundle

Installation started, it asked me to install GCC 4.5.1 and linux kernel-desktop-devel 2.6.37.1-1.2, which i did by using YAST2, also worked out very nice. Only difference was that YAST2 offered me a newer version of kernel-desktop-devel 2.6.37.2-1.1 instead of 1-1.2 .

But then my problems started:

Although installation completed fine, when first running it it failed, pointing me to the following error log:

Does any of you have an idea what could be wrong ? Do i have to 'downgrade' to the elder kernel-desktop-devel ?

Thanks

Hi All,

finally solved for OpenSUSE 11.6 x64, used the following with some changes


http://linux.ioda.net/openSUSE/patch...62-opensuse.sh

Change this script line 4 to:

fpatch=vmware-7.1.3-2.6.37-9-generic.patch

to use the following file(unzipped):

http://communities.vmware.com/servle...eric.patch.zip

And working :-)

Thanks for your help!

Brian

On my xubuntu machine I went to the directory of the .bundle file in a terminal window and I typed:

sudo sh then the name of the file

...after that vmware's installation wizard appeared.

hope this helps.
