Vmware missing device /dev/vmmon
Hello. I have vmware and knoppix, slax, and a few other distros. I dont have much knowledge of linux yet. I wanna know why it says missing /dev/vmmon when i have installed vmware and try to run it in slax? It is the only distro i have tried so far. When i installed it, it was from rpm, I said - rpm ivh nodeps vmware.rpm and it installed. but when i tried to start a virtual machine the error came up: missing /dev/vmmon. What do i do?
Is it cause i installed it with nodeps? I figured that means no dependencies.
