hmm ok.. just a clarification.. what do you mean "RE RUN THE INSTALL SCRIPT? wat script are you pertaining to?

1. the vmware-install.pl ?

2. the runme.pl of the anyupdate directory?

sorry got a little confusion here. . .


ok i just made this first :

1. cd /etc $mkdir pam.d/

2. cp /etc/vmware/pam.d/vmware-authd /etc/pam.d/

and now. . clueless of what to do next. . .

Re-run whatever script you ran when which gave you the error message about being unable to copy the file /etc/vmware/pam.d/vmware-authd to /etc/pam.d/.

Make sure you leave the directories you created under /etc/rc.d or you will have to re-run configure after every reboot; well at least in my case I had to leave them.

is this correct?

Quote:

Add a few lines to /etc/rc.d/rc.local to set up VMware when you boot the computer

(In /etc/rc.d/rc.local)

if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.vmware ]; then
/etc/rc.d/rc.vmware start
fi

BTW, i have the vmware filename (generated by the installation) ..NOT rc.vmware. ..

SHOULD i rename the vmware file to rc.vmware? ? or just stick with the vmware script. . .? hmm i think i need to rename it to rc.vmware. .

I just took the vmware script(do not think I changed anything) and threw it under /etc/rc.d/, then made it executable and all is OK. I did not add anything to /etc/rc.d/rc.local.

Hope it helps some.
