Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have been trying to install VMPlayer on my MINT 11 system and keep getting installer errors. I have tried various permutations of the CLI gksudo bash etc and also tried installing earlier versions of the VMplayer code.
Build-essentials are installed
jim@saturn ~ $ uname -a
Linux saturn 2.6.38-8-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:31:24 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
jim@saturn ~ $ sudo sh VMware-Player-3.1.5-491717.x86_64.bundle
[sudo] password for jim:
Extracting VMware Installer...done.
VMware-Player-3.1.5-491717.x86_64.bundle: line 302: /tmp/vmis.2WxO3j/install/vmware-installer/vmware-installer: Permission denied
Similar response, the installer extracted then NOTHING, no error message just nothing.
Only difference was that I had installed the MINT 11 updates between tries, I had tried the same and go exactlt the same result priuor to my original post as I had looked at various other channels like Google etc (as I do before posting for help).
This one has got me stumped. I hope this response helps.
Now this was recommended along with some other changes in an earlier version of ubuntu which did not support SSD the idea was for performance and to minimise unnecessary R/W to the SSD that RAM (which is abdundant) was used to host tmp. I have never had problems with this until perhaps now so have always left it as is.
I'm assuming if I don't do anything tmp will default to the /dev/sda1
I looked in my Ubuntu 8.04 notes (I record my changes!) the reason it is set at nodev,nosuid,noexec was as a "security" measure, so any advice on what to do if it works, I did a quick search and some people think this is a superfluous measure, however it is beyond the realms of my knowledge.
