Ubuntu 7.04 feisty & Vmware Server

Upgrade to Feisty, yet my vmware server wouldn’t start anymore. The update.pl wasn’t capable of solving it, yet after a bit of googling I found a patch for it…

Patching the software

Newer version of Kernel the VMware server needs to be patched, here is how.

* Get the code

wget http://ftp.cvut.cz/vmware/vmware-any-any-update109.tar.gz

* Unpack it

tar xvzf vwmare-any-any-update109.tar.gz

* Change to its directory

cd vwmare-any-any-update108

* Run the script that is going to patch the VMWare.

UPDATE (10/08/2007)
* check within the index of http://ftp.cvut.cz/vmware/ first, as the vmware-any-any-updateXXX.tar.gz file gets updated a lot
* afterwards, run the “vmware-config.pl” tool again, and you should have no problems with your vmware
