RE: VMware on Slackware 10 - permision,and serup problem
Thanks a lot,it helped.
With change you recommend,and with help of this page
"www .cs.ucr.edu/~jbyrne/vmware. htm"
I was able to install it.
But it looks I need rather VMWare-server, despite player.
So I decided to install VMWare-server, that's installation was nearly the same.
But after this, I realized another problem.
It is not possible to add win XP partition to server in set-up(real partition with win XP on it). I found somewhere, that problem could be permissions to write on partition I want use. I have no write permissions on win XP partition, despite the fact I have in fstab
/dev/sda1 /mnt/winxp ntfs noauto,rw,user,owner,uid=petr 0 0
and kernel has NTFS support.
does anyone any idea, where is the problem? is it right I need permisions to write?
and even now, I'm not able to run setup wizard, because when I try to set new virtual machine, it gives
"The local VMware Server is not installed, or is not currently running.
Make sure that the server is properly installed and try again."
I'm sure server is running,
bash-3.00# /etc/init.d/vmware start
Starting VMware services:
Virtual machine monitor done
Starting VMware virtual machines... done
,and it was properly installed because, ones I was able to run configuration wizard.
this reveal after restart.
