Why won't Parallels install on Ubunut 9.04?


I am trying to install Parallels-2.2.2334_2-lin-en-parallels.deb on my Ubuntu 9.04 x86 box. Here is a screenshot of the error I get when using the gdebi pkg installer: http://bit.ly/3qWCmC. I have already tried dpkg-reconfigure debconf. Any idea what's happening here?

Thanks,

trox

Parallels doesn't support AMD?

Figured it out. Parallels doesn't support AMD. Oh well, guess it's back to VBox. I like Vbox, but the screen is soooo small. Parallels give you a full screen a near native speed. Anyone know how to get the screen bigger in VBox?


Thanks,

trox

Vbox bigger screen!

Funny I'm replying to my own posts. But maybe this will help someone else. I found the workaround for getting a larger screen in VBox. http://bit.ly/T1HAE. Cheers! Now I don't have to buy Parallels or VmWare!
