How to start or run VMware-WSX-1.0-812388.i386.bundle in PCLinuxOs ...?


Hey Guys,

I installed VMware-WSX-1.0-812388.i386.bundle in my PCLinuxOS PC.

It's installed, but how do I configure it in order to run it/open it up?

I've tried searching everywhere, but nothing. There's a lot of stuff there, but just jibber-jabber.

I know this site is for Ubuntu, however thought someone here might be able to help me or point me in the right direction.

Thanks,

d-1

Normally vmware installs a script in /etc/init.d/ for starting the tools.
Another tool is vmware-config.pl IIRC.

You need to configure first, then start vmware tools, both as root

I looked in /etc/init.d/ and all I found was vmware-wsx-server, I searched everywhere for vmware-config.pl and could not find it anywhere.

Thanks,

Sorry this is a VMware server? Then the script you found should do the trick when adding "start" after it while executing the command.

If you get any errors,... please post them back

I noticed it said server and wondered why. I thought I downloaded and installed VMWare Work Station.

That was the problem, but now here's my new problem, I installed VMPlayer first, and now I can't install VMWare Work Station without uninstalling VMPlayer, do you know how to manually uninstall VMPlayer from pclinuxos?

Thanks,

d-1

I figured out how to remove VMPlayer on PCLinuxOs - For removal of Vmware Player as root, that's su (in PCLOS) type this inside Konsole:
Code:

vmware-installer -u vmware-player

Got VMWare Workstation installed with no problem, thanks for your help deadeyes, it made me think....

After installing it, go to menu and drag up to RUN Command and type in VMWare and click on it and it opens up.

Thanks,
