Well lets see if I can help you a bit. One reason you might have a problem if it won't start is you can't have botht he player and vmware itself run on the same system. The point of the player is for you to share an image with another or use it on another system, both without having to worry about a lic to use vmware itself. To start vmware from a console or say in kde from the K menu run command type vmware. That will start it up and you can then get into the help files and set it up with it infront of you or browse for the help files on your system and look at them in your favorite web browser.

Starting vmware on Fedora Core 5

I just ran the vmrare rpm package and was informed the the installation was successfull. Now, how do you start the vmware application?

Simply typing vmware at the console is not working. Where are the files that were installed? can anyone help.

Thanks

Charles Halsall
