Installing VMWare Workstation 7.x (32bit) on Mint 14 (32bit)
I have been beating my head against the wall trying to run VMware Workstation 7.1.6 32-bit on Mint 14 32-bit w/ Mate. It installed without to much of a fuss. Unfortunately, that is where the good times ended. I have installed “patch-modules_3.4.0.sh”. While that got me further along it still hasn't been able to successfully complete the VMWare Kernel Module Updater” It errors out stating “Unable to start services”
I know VirtualBox probably cooperates better than VMWare for running on Linux but, the company I work for uses VMWare 7.x exclusively. Therefore, I use VMWare 7.x exclusively.
Hopefully, I'm making an easy newbie mistake and this is easier than I'm making it.
Thanks in advance for your help,
