Re: VMware Workstation in F11



I installed VMware on F11 and the patch and it started fine for me, but when I tried to install WinXP as a guest OS my system locked up solid.  By default vmware looks for files in ~./vmware if you moved it and didn't change the config you'll get this error.  I also get the errors shown below during the install.

Installing VMware Workstation 6.5.2

I also see the following error during compile

This happens on several files.  However, it does seem to work in the end.

I performed a fresh install of F11, then installed
VMware-Workstation-6.5.2-156735.x86_64.rpm.  Installed the patch for
kernel-2.6.29 from http://communities.vmware.com/thread/203231.  Now,
when I try to start a VM, I get a message that the .vmdk file can't be
found.  The message pop-up lets me browse to the location of the file.

        File not found: xxx.vmdk

       This file is required to power on the virtual machine.  If this
       file was moved, please provide its new location.

But the file has not been moved, and when I select the file from the
browser, VMware still refuses to start.

Turning selinux to non-enforcing doesn't help.  Problem occurs with
Workstation and Player.  Everything worked fine with F10, including with
a 2.6.29 test kernel.

Anybody seen this?  Anybody know a solution?

TIA.
