hello dyasny,

yes. I have run the command vmware-config.pl script very often.
The script is ended without any error. But the console is not start.

Should I try to start the console under the root-login?

I am having the same issue with vmware server 1.0.6 on Debian Lenny.

Running
$ uname -a
Linux judas 2.6.25-2-amd64 #1 SMP Mon Jul 14 11:05:23 UTC 2008 x86_64 GNU/Linux

The issue occurs no matter what VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_GTK is set to (no, force and yes all fail).

I have ia32-libs-gtk installed so it should be able to run on those. In many 64 bit distributions Vmware seems to have problems using the 64bit gtk libs that are supplied.

Tried a few more things with no results still.

Code:
sed -i -e 's:usr/lib/:usr/l32/:g' /usr/lib32/libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so.0.1200.10
sed -i -e 's:usr/lib/:usr/l32/:g'  /usr/lib32/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/loader-files.d/libgtk2.0-0.loaders
ln -s /usr/lib32 /usr/l32
These were recommended on an x86_64 install of Ubuntu 8.04 but it looks like they don't resolve the issue on Lenny.

Will keep you guys posted if I manage to fix it.

Those commands posted in my last post actually correct the issue. I didn't notice this until I had run vmware-config.pl and recompiled the module over again.

It is due to a bug in the current version of the library libX11-6, that is 2:1.1.4-2,as you can check in this link: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=486507

Downgrading to the version 2:1.0.3-7, you can find it here: http://packages.debian.org/etch/libx11-6, is supposed to fix the problem. It worked out fine with some, with me it didn't though.

my experience with vmware on lenny x64

In my case i am pretty sure the only thing missing was to install:

Code:
aptitude install ia32-libs-gtk
I also did these copies first, i dont know if they are necesarry:

Code:
cp /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libgcc_s.so.1/
and
cp /usr/lib32/libpng12.so /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libpng12.so.0/
my complete list of dependencies on lenny:

Code:
apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` libx11-6 libx11-dev x-window-system-core x-window-system xspecs libxtst6 psmisc build-essential ia32-libs-gtk ia32-libs
(needed any-any patch 117 though)

regards
