I've got VMware server2 running on Slackware64 and it went pretty much without a hitch. What kind of problems are you running into?

It depends, which VMware server are you trying to install, 1 or 2? If you're installing 2, then I've successfully used this patch. However, I have no idea if it would work with 1 or not.

Since you're using VMWare Server 2, you'll also have to install PAM. It won't do anything for Slackware, but you can't log into the VMWare server without it. The easiest way I've found is to use src2pkg to make a PAM package:

Code:
src2pkg -B -C -e='--libdir=/usr/lib --sbindir=/lib/security --enable-securedir=/lib/security --enable-read-both-confs'  PAM-file.tar.gz

Once you've done that you need to do a little linking in /lib/security so VMWare can find PAM:

Code:
cd /lib/security
ln -s pam_unix.so pam_unix2.so
ln -s pam_unix.so pam_unix_auth.so
ln -s pam_unix.so pam_unix_acct.so

Lastly, you need to create /etc/pam.d and copy usr/sbin/vmware-authd into that directory.
