Angry VMware


I am trying to run VMware workstation on my SuSE 7.1!

i have got the license and followed the companys instructions!!

i opened a shell and typed ( already installed new version of VMware) "vmware". then i got a message that "vmware is installed but not correctly configured for my running Kernel. the administrator must find and run vmware-config.pl or something like that". i found the file as root and run it. it started and it said that in order to procced i had to read the license agreenment, and accept, press ENTER to view the file.

so i pressed enter and got the file, but at the end of it there is no accept button and i cannot continue!!!

When I was installing this, all you had to do was hit enter agin at the end and it would finish.

This something that is part of the basic install instructions that you should have read before you started.

--Per the documentation---

6.Run the configuration script.
vmware-config.pl
Note: This script can be used to reconfigure VMware whenever you upgrade your kernel.
It is not necessary to reinstall VMware.
7. Acknowledge the end user license agreement (EULA). You may page through it using the
space bar. If you do not get the “Do you accept...” prompt, you may press Q to get to the
next prompt.

I just seen your post in the "got a old pentium" forum about you thinking that you need more RAM.

I can assure you that is not the problem here. You are having a problem accepting you license.

Having recently installed VMware myself, I believe you're supposed to type in the word "yes" to continue the script configuration.

I got your exact same error, and this is how you fix it.

Pull up a command shell froom within your user account, and go in as su

Type vmware-config.pl

If you follow the instructions, you will get it correctly configured. It wont take but a minute or so.

vmware... nice idea...in theory

Emperor, I am very damn saddened to see youre having trouble with vmware.

It came with my distro, SuSE Personal 7.0. Of course, I had to go get the key to use it on a limited basis as well. It functioned as well as it could because I have a 300mHz Cyrix MMII cpu with 64megs (sadly, not enough system memory and power for a lot of things these days --sigh!--).

Once installed, and, as I was trying to run vmware it informed it would now create a virtual computer with 150mhz cpu and 32 megs of RAM. Im not sure if this has been a problem for you, but, if you are using an older computer (i.e. a '97 pentium class with low RAM) then you can expect problems similar to watch you've experienced.

As of now I am going to install vmware and try either Red Hat 7.1 or Windows 95 on it and see if I can figure out whats causing a dead end for you.
