General :: Vmware Server 2.0.2 Installation On 12 - Making Sure Services For VMware Server Are Stopped

May 19, 2010

I have installed fc12 on my core2due machine, and I have installed the vmware server on it, its rpm is installed successfully with out any error, after that a message is displayed

The installation of VMware Server 2.0.2 for Linux completed successfully. You can decide to remove this software from your system at any time by invoking the following command: "rpm -e VMware-server".

Before running VMware Server for the first time, you need to configure it for your running kernel by invoking the following command: "/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl".

I tried this command and find the this message

[Akram@localhost Downloads]$ su -c "/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl" Password: Making sure services for VMware Server are stopped.

None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server is suitable for your running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes] yes

Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "4.4.2", while you are trying to use "/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.4.3". This configuration is not recommended and VMware Server may crash if you'll continue. Please try to use exactly same compiler as one used for building your kernel. Do you want to go with compiler
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.4.3" anyway? [no] yes

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel?[/usr/src/linux/include]

Now it asks me in last lines that "What is the location of Directory of C header files that match your running kernal?"

Fedora :: Installation Of VMWare Server 2.0.2 On 13

Jun 21, 2010

I know this has been discussed many times, but with the current versions, things have changed again. So I ask again.

I am installed:
- Fedora 13, x64

I want to install, config and run:
- VMWare Server 2.0.2 (Community Edition)

I have already upgraded my Fedora 13 system using important commands:
- yum install kernel-headers kernel-devel
- yum install gcc

I have a directory:
with some subdirectories, but no include folder there.

vmware-config found the gcc, but cant find the kernel-header files. Also I dont know how to give it the correct path to these kernel-header files.

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Install F10 Using VMWare

Oct 4, 2009

Actually I found a discussion on this topic. But my problem a bit different from the discussion made over there...The major discussion in that topic is related to the Graphics Issue. But my problem is with the CPU(as my machine says so).... I am posting my screenshot herewith. Please take some time to review it. This would be grateful.

Actually the error says: "This Kernel requires an x86-64 CPU. but only detected i686 CPU. Unable to Boot - please use a kernel appropriate for ur CPU." What does this mean?? My machine has Intel Core 2 Duo t6600 processor. Is Virtualization Playing a role in this issue...??

Fedora Installation :: Error While Trying To Install Vmware Tools - 11

Oct 22, 2009

I have Vmware Fusion 2.0.6 (196839) running on my MacBook Pro. I installed Fedora 11 on the fusion and it works fine. The only problem that I am having is that when I try to install vmware tools, by runnning ./vmware-install.pl in the terminal, I am prompted with this message: What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]

If I press Enter, the same message pops up. I am fairly new to linux, and I am just setting this up so I can set up a web server on this virtual machine for testing purposes.

the kernel that I have running is:

root@box1 include# uname -r

Installation :: Fedora 14 Won't Install In VirtualBox / Why Is So?

Feb 10, 2011

I am trying to take a look at Fedora for the 1st time and usually like to have a good tryout of a distro in VirtualBox.

Firstly, the live cd image boots up fine and seems to work ok except for a Kernel crash at the beginning of the gnome session, but it does enable basic usage within the live system.

But, when trying to do an actual hd install (still within VBox) Fedora 14 just keeps on crashing the VBox??, every install attempt just aborts, I have given the virtual machine a 20gb virtual hd, 2gb ram, 128mb video ram and have not applied any "unusual" extra settings. All versions of Ubuntu, Mint and PCLinuxOS work flawlessly within VBox.

Has anyone else tried installing into VirtualBox here?? (not just running the live environment)

I've wasted a good few hours with this, is it just that some distros dont like VirtualBox or is this indicative of what Fedora would be like on a real non virtual install??

ps, I have the latest VirtualBox fully updated and a flawless host (Mint 9), and perhaps I should add that I'm not a Linux expert and have only been using Linux for just under a year now.

Fedora Installation :: Install F13 In Virtual Machine Within Virtualbox / But Its Not Working

Jun 28, 2010

My laptop is running Linux Mint 9 and I am trying to install Fedora 13 in a virtual machine within Virtualbox. However, it's not working. It takes forever to get past the initial white/blue loading bar when it first boots and then it just goes white, so I can't see anything. I've already tried modifying the bootline parameter of the live CD to include noprobe, noacpi, noapic, nousb, and nofirewire. However, the result is the same. Am I missing something? Is it possible to install this?

Ubuntu :: Remove VMware And Go To Using VirtualBox?

Aug 4, 2010

I installed Vmware and the installaion failed. I want to remove it and go back to using VirtualBox (simply because I am familiar with the software). However I am having some problems removing VMWare from my pc. It does not appear in the ubuntu software center and was wondering what command I can use to remove it. sudo ap-get remove vmware does not work (maybe my command is wrong?).

the installation did not complete, it installed fine from the installer (.sh file) however once I start it up it starts to install other components ie. Networking etc. This is where it does not finish installing.

Slackware :: How To Install VMware Server 2.0 On 13

Jan 1, 2010

I make no claims to be an expert. I am however a long time Slackware user, and have noticed a few posts concerning the ins and outs of previous how-to's on the same subject that are now outdated.

Keep in mind I take no responsibility for any damages to data, hardware, time, or liquor cabinets. Use at your own risk! So..

How to Install VMware Server on Slackware host

This is assuming you have a fresh full install of Slackware 13, I will be doing this install on a 64bit os, but the steps are relative and will also work on a 32.

STEP ONE- You are going to need pam to successfully authenticate on the web interface later, so take care of that first. There are a few different ways to go about this especially if you are on a 32bit install.

32BIT - You may go ahead and download the Linux-PAM package from a slacky repository.


OR - Of course you could build linux-pam from source, but I would recommend using src2pkg as it is easy, and outputs a tgz that you may install with installpkg. As I dont want to ramble forever Src2Pkg is the home to get it if you do not already have it. Once it is installed.....

cd /usr/src


These switches will delete the temporary files used during the creation of our package, and drop its output into our current directory.


Once that is done (as we wont really be using this file right now.) mv /etc/pam.d /etc/pam.ds

But we do need a pam.d directory for Vmware mkdir /etc/pam.d

We are now ready to install Vmware Server

STEP TWO- If you have not done so already, it is time to download the vmware archive. This requires signing up on their website, and it will provide you keys after email activation.

Now that we have the file, extract it


As slackware now contains an /etc/rc.d/init.d, vmware's installer will detect all the correct directories to drop files into. That includes autostart on reboot. Default's should be fine for everything in the main installer.

-PAUSE AT THE "run vmware-config.pl now?"

It is important to note, that if you are using 64 bit you will need to use a patch to fix a couple of modules. So when you get to the part where it asks to run vmware-config.pl now? Tell it "no" if you are 64bit. Yes should work for 32bit fine, and continue to creating virtual network devices, and input of serial number.

32Bit users, your adventure should be over. At this point you should be able to open a browser, point it at the machines lan ip address, external ip address, or localhost on port 8222. If you have problems and you did not run networkconfig during slackware setup, run it now, reboot and you should be fine. Sometimes fine tuning of /etc/hosts is needed depending on your network situation. 64Bit ... Sorry to say yes, we have to repair something before we can continue

First obtain the patch files from [url] once you have them, in the same directory they are located (even /usr/src is fine)


After this has finished patching, you may run vmware-config.pl to continue your installation.


If you have any error's check your /var/log/vmware directory, also make sure your /etc/hosts is valid.

OpenSUSE :: Virtualbox/vmware - Unable To Control Full Screen Mode In 11.3

Nov 1, 2010

I am using vmware and virtualbox for experimenting with different linux distros and for using windows... When I switch to full screen, the upper portion(about 50px from top) of system becomes unusable because I am not able to click with my mouse anywhere there. So ubuntu's top panel becomes unaccesible and for vmware, once it becomes full screen I am not able to minimize/restore/close it.

In full screen mode, looking at the mouse cursor, it seems to be controlled by guest system when in full screen but as soon as I move it to top of the screen, the host machine takes control of it and then I cannot access any top panels or vmware toolbar. Is there any solution to this problem... Please let me know if more information is needed from my side.I am using opensuse 11.3, KDE4.4.4, vmware 3.1.2/virtualbox 3.2.10. The problem is for both vmware and virtualbox.

OpenSUSE Install :: Kernel - VMWare Server 2.1 On 11.1?

Jan 5, 2011

first of all, please excuse my bad english. We rent a dedicatet server at Strato.de.I need to install VMWare Server. Actually this should be no Problem for me. I installed the server an patch.When I run the vmware-config.pl starts the problems:

Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "4.3.2", while you are trying to use "/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.3". This configuration is not recommended and VMware Server may crash if you'll continue. Please try to use exactly same compiler as one used for building your kernel. Do you want to go with compiler "/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.3" anyway? [no] I submit "y".
