QUERY: fedora,redhat vs. vmware


It is listed here (see bottom of page) http://www.vmware.com/support/ws5/do...ostreq_ws.html a list of supported distros for VMWareWorkstation.

Now, is it alright to go ahead and use Fedora Core because Fedora is essentailly RedHat? So Fedora will be supported by VMWareWorkstation?

yes, I used Fedora Core 1 in VMWare, it worked well. I did have to install the OS in text mode though, maybe that's gotten better.

You mean you had to have Fedora Core 1 in text mode to be able to install VMWare?

I was talking about running Fedora Core in VMWare as a guest OS, I had to install FC as the guest OS in text mode.

Sounds like you are trying to install VMWare on Fedora? If so, I had VMWare on FC1, FC2 and FC3 and it works well.

thanks man. I successfully installed VMWare using the .tar.gz route... on Fedora Core 4 (from http://www.k12ltsp.org/ ).

The Fedora Core 4 I've got has been automatically set up by K12-LTSP to be a Linux Terminal Server (running PXE/DHCP, TFTP, etc.). When I tried to run VMWare it says not configured properly and the network bridge status FAILED. I guess this has something to do with the Linux Terminal Server conflicting with the Network Bridge connections of VMWare. Is there anyway to get around this to get VMWare to work?
