Thread: vmaware server doesn' run -- help !

  1. vmaware server doesn' run -- help !

    Since vmware server is no longer in the ubuntu repo, I sownloaded the tgz
    package from the vmware website, and installed it following the
    instructions on following webpage

    http://users.piuha.net/martti/comp/u.../server.html#6
    Start be fetching these three files.

    * VMware-server-1.0.5-80187.tar.gz
    * vmware-any-any-update-116.tgz
    * VMware-server-linux-client-1.0.5-80187.zip

    Next install some packages needed during the installation.

    # sudo aptitude install xinetd
    # sudo aptitude install build-essential

    ## If you are running the linux-generic kernel
    ## (i.e. you installed from Desktop or Alternate Installation CD)
    # sudo aptitude install linux-headers-generic

    Next install the VMware Server but do not configure it by running
    vmware-config.pl at this stage as we need to apply the "any any" patch
    first.

    # tar xzf VMware-server-1.0.5-80187.tar.gz -C /tmp
    # cd /tmp/vmware-server-distrib
    # sudo ./vmware-install.pl

    Next apply the "any any" patch. Please note that you must rebuild the update
    utility before using it.

    # tar xzf vmware-any-any-update116.tar.gz -C /tmp
    # cd /tmp/vmware-any-any-update116
    # gcc -o update update.c
    # sudo ./runme.pl

    Everything installs fine, without errors.
    When I try to start vmware, I get following errors

    marc@l1:/etc/samba$ vmware
    /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware: /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libgcc_s.so.1/libgcc_s.so.1:

    When looking in synaptic for libgcc, there is only libgcc1, and no
    libgcc_s.so. ??

    In K-menu, the icon to start the vmware server console is in lost & found ??

    What am I missing here, how can I get vmware server to run ?

    When something like this happens, try plugging some of the error
    messages into Google. If they don't include the program name, add that
    to the beginning of the line so you'll find results relevant to that
    program. If you get too many results it helps to also add "Ubuntu" and
    the OS version.

    For example, I plugged the following in:

    "vmware server" "ubuntu 8.04" /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libgcc_s.so.1/libgcc_s.so.1: version `GCC_3.4' not found

    The second one down looks interesting:

    Thanks, this solved the problem
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    *** This is the step i had trouble finding ***
    step 11 )
    cp /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libgcc_s.so.1/
    cp /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0 /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libpng12.so.0/
    --------------------------------------------------------------

    I googled around, and looked on the vmware site yesterday, almost all day.
    Thanks for your pointer on how to look for error messages,
    I'm shure it wil be handy in the future.

    I use Wxp for 2 applications for which I don't find a linux equivalent
    - Martmitec X10 home automation controller
    I think I will find something for this soon
    - Sunny beam solar panel production readout
    Nothing to find, I contacted the manufacturer,
    but he is not willing to publish the interface specs
    for open source development.
