Hilarious.

You also don't say what happened after it uninstalled in the last section.

I don't understand what you're talking about.

I said that when I run this:

Code:
./VMware-Workstation-7.0.0-203739.bundle --console -uninstall-component=vmware-workstation
The output is this:

Code:
Extracting VMware Installer...done.
ninstall-component=vmware-workstation is not an installed product.
Available products are:

vmware-workstation
And it's hilarius 'cause it says that VMWARE-WORKSTATION is NOT installed product, but after it says that the package available is VMWARE-WORKSTATION!



Or if I run this:

Code:
./VMware-Workstation-7.0.0-203739.bundle --console -u vmware-workstation
My output is this:

Code:
Extracting VMware Installer...done.
All configuration information is about to be removed. Do you wish to
keep your configuration files? no: no

Uninstalling VMware Workstation 7.0.0
Deconfiguring...All configuration information is about to be removed. Do you wish to

Deconfiguring...root@slk64:/home/UP/VMware Workstation 7.0.0-203739#
root@slk64:/home/UP/VMware Workstation 7.0.0-203739#
In the last output nothing has been cut! The uninstaller STOPS EXACTLY AS I POSTED!

And I don't think there's a log -.-

Read my post very carefully. Especially the "should be" part. Spot the difference.

it doesn't say VMWARE-WORKSTATION is NOT installed product
it says
ninstall-component=vmware-workstation is not an installed product.

have you installed "ninstall-component=vmware-workstation"

?

It's funny you say you don't know what I'm talking about, when that's exactly your problem.
Don't shout at me or you're on your own.

have you installed "ninstall-component=vmware-workstation"

?
Damn you're right ^^

And AGAIN I'm very stupid.

Now I tried the command like so:

Code:
./VMware-Workstation-7.0.0-203739_x86_64-NoTools.bundle --console --uninstall-component= vmware-workstation
With another DASH before "uninstall"

and now I got this:

Code:
Extracting VMware Installer...done.
Available components are:

  vmware-installer
  vmware-player-setup
  vmware-vix
  vmware-player-app
  vmware-workstation
any ideas?

Please don't take offense but you are not being very observant. The example given was :
Quote:
./VMware-Workstation-7.0.0-203739.bundle --console --uninstall-component=vmware-workstation
and not :
Quote:
./VMware-Workstation-7.0.0-203739_x86_64-NoTools.bundle --console --uninstall-component= vmware-workstation
note the space here between "=" and "vmware-workstation" makes a difference.

WOOOOOOOW I solved the problem

the script just need a -I parameter (ignore script error)... so:

./VMware-Workstation-7.0.0-203739.bundle --console -I --uninstall-component=vmware-workstation

the output is:

Code:
Extracting VMware Installer...done.
All configuration information is about to be removed. Do you wish to
keep your configuration files? [no]:

Uninstalling VMware Installer 1.1
    Deconfiguring...
[######################################################################] 100%
Uninstallation was successful.
Thanks to everybody for your support

How To UNINSTALL VmWare on Slackware

I write this article just because I think some people (like me) may have some trouble to do this.

This "tutorial" is based on Slackware 13 64 Bit with VmWare Workstation 7 64 Bit

First of all FORGET the GUI, I'm a fan of GUI but in this case you CANNOT USE IT.


  1. Open a shell and type:

    Code:
    vmware-installer -l
    You should have an output like this:

    Code:
    Product Name           Product Version
    ====================== ====================
    vmware-workstation     7.0.0.203739
    Now type this:

    Code:
    vmware-installer -l
    And your output may look like this:

    Code:
    Component Name         Component Long Name                      Component Version
    ====================== ======================================== ====================
    vmware-installer       VMware Installer                         1.1.203739
    vmware-player-setup    VMware Player Setup                      3.0.0.203739
    vmware-vix             VMware VIX API                           1.8.0.203739
    vmware-player-app      VMware Player Application                3.0.0.203739
    vmware-workstation     VMware Workstation                       7.0.0.203739
  1. Now you have a list of what is installed

    Type this command:

    Code:
    vmware-installer --console --uninstall-product=vmware-workstation
    You've to choose if you want to keep the files or not, in MY case I said NO. So here you have the output:

    Code:
    All configuration information is about to be removed. Do you wish to
    keep your configuration files? [no]: no
    
    Uninstalling VMware Workstation 7.0.0
        Deconfiguring...All configuration information is about to be removed. Do you wish to
    keep your configuration files? [no]: no                                ]  37%
    
    Uninstalling VMware Workstation 7.0.0
        Deconfiguring...root@slk64:/home/UP/VMware Workstation 7.0.0-203739#
  1. As you can see, the output doesn't say SUCCESSFUL, this's because vmware is NOT uninstalled!

    Now type this:

    Code:
    vmware-installer --console -I --uninstall-product=vmware-workstation
    This is the same code wrote before but this time it as a "-I" parameter that's mean "IGNORE SCRIPT ERROR".

    the output will be:

    Code:
    All configuration information is about to be removed. Do you wish to
    keep your configuration files? [no]: no
    
    Uninstalling VMware Installer 1.1
        Deconfiguring...
    [######################################################################] 100%
    Uninstallation was successful.
    Now you may say: "Why not running this command immediatly instead of procede with the step 2?"

    Because the -I option ignores services, that's mean if you don't run first the command without the -I option, not all services may be uninstalled. This is not sure... but I experienced this problem!

[list=4]
Now if you have the installer package you can do one check:

cd to the folder where the package is then run
Code:
root@slk64:/home/UP/VMware Workstation 7.0.0-203739# ./VMware-Workstation-7.0.0-203739_x86_64-NoTools.bundle vmware-installer -l
you will have:

Code:
Extracting VMware Installer...done.
Product Name           Product Version
====================== ====================

At the end you can run:

Code:
root@slk64:/home/UP/VMware Workstation 7.0.0-203739# ./VMware-Workstation-7.0.0-203739_x86_64-NoTools.bundle vmware-installer -t
And the result...

Code:
Extracting VMware Installer...done.
Component Name         Component Long Name                      Component Version
====================== ======================================== ====================

NOW YOU JUST SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED THE UNINSTALL PROCESS



Hope this help and sorry for every english mistake.

INSTALLING vmware 7 workstation

I'm back again

I found a solution to install VmWare Workstation 7 on my Slack 13 64bit

I tried to install vmware on my slack 13 64bit in one virtual machine (the "server" was Windows 7 and the application was Virtual Box). EVERYTHING was simply perfect! Everything worked!

So in these days I installed slack on my notebook, unfortunately vmware installed successfully but every time I start the application (from console) it gave me this error:


Code:
/usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libgtkmm-2.4.so.1: undefined symbol: gtk_action_set_tooltip
This error prevent vmware from starting the gui (and also others applications).

If I tried to start without the command line nothing appeared.

So... after 3 days of HARD WORK... I FOUND A SOLUTION. Please don't kill me!

simply go here: /root/usr/lib64

locate this file: libgtkmm-2.4.so.1

and RENAME IT with something like: NOT_IN_USE_libgtkmm-2.4.so.1

Now try to start vmware... it WORKS!!!



I really don't know what this file does... but after googling... I found NOBODY with another solution...


Hope this help


bye bye

That's a very old copy of gtkmm from 2004
The latest version is 2.14.0 from 2008.

gtkmm is the official C++ interface for the popular GUI library GTK+.
http://www.gtkmm.org/

Maybe VMware expects a newer version where gtk_action_set_tooltip is defined ?

I did many research, and also opened a post on vmware community but nobody has an answer...

So you could be right

Maybe you can help me with the installation:

I downloaded glib-2.22.4 and gtk+-2.18.7

then in glib folder I ran:

./configure
make
make install

apparently no errors were generated.

then just to be sure I typed:

ldconfig -v

Also here I think there are no errors.

So I cd to gtk folder and I type:

./configure

here's the output:

Code:
checking for BASE_DEPENDENCIES... configure: error: Package requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.21.3    atk >= 1.13.0    pango >= 1.20    cairo >= 1.6) were not met:

Requested 'glib-2.0 >= 2.21.3' but version of GLib is 2.18.4
So, how do I install / update this library?


Thanks

Yes smoker, I read it. I posted mine to be stand alone, simple and straight to the point.

That being said, have you or anyone else been able to run MAC OS on VMware with an AMD 64 bit processor...?

Thanks,
