I have a Slackware 12.0 install on my laptop, and I am trying to get VMWare Workstation 6 installed so that I can run Pro/E on windows.
I had VMWare installed and running for quite some time on Slack 11.0, it would seem the 11.0->12.0 upgrade has caused this problem.
The error I get when calling 'vmware', is:
/usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware: error while loading shared libraries: libgnomevfs-2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I have attempted to locate how to install libgnomevfs and that came to no avail, I found a source package to compile the library but it has a large amount of dependencies (I would assume gnome packages), considering I don't use gnome and never have I can't imagine that the problem is as 'simple' as needing libgnomevfs.
I tried updating to version 6 (I was running 5.5), I also uninstalled VMWare and did a clean install with version 6 and ran the any-any-update113.
I can't seem to find anyone else with my same problem, or a solution to a similar problem which might help me gain way. If you have any ideas on a solution, I would greatly appreciate your help.
