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...??
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.
I am using ubuntu 10.10 on vmware. my system os is mac os x 10.6. i am not able to install apache2. i get a message functional dependency can not be resolved. this error could be caused by required additional software packages which are missing or not installable. i run command on terminal sudo apt-get install apache2. it gives a big paragraph and at the end says E: broken packages.
I am trying to install vmware tools on redhat 5 linux guest os running on vmworkstation 6.5 with window vista host machine.

[/user/src/linux/include]
For those who want use in VMware guest 3D games or any, using intel graphics... (who cant enable it ) You must enable S3TC texture compression even if your card can't enable it!The software you must use is DRICONF... You can Download it at the package manager...
I recently started to use Ubuntu in VWware player on my windows-XP. I installed ubuntu 10.04 few days ago, It was working fine.
Yesterday, I compile a new kernel, kernel 2.6.33 in my vmware ubuntu 10.04. Everything went well till I did reboot. before reboot I use the command "update-grub" to make it compatible to the new kernel. BUT... after rebooting, I have a problem in loading a grub correctly. it gives me following message " [2.149136 ]kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)" and I can not proceed further. I have my all data on it. I also tried to boot it from live CD but unfortunately, I can't mount the hard disk on it in order to get those data from my old Ubuntu set up.
Is it possible to install Snow Leopard 10.6.6 VMware AMD edition (which I downloaded) on VMware linux? It is under Windows 7 so I just need to know if everything of VMware linux (like Hardware Virtualization) is the same under linux as for Windows.
I want to install debian on vmware workstation 7.1.4 but there's a problem! when I try to install vmware tools or open-vm, it can't complete compile modules of vmware. It is a big problem... It seem problem of kernel version after 2.6.37... But I can't find solution. logs.... Before you can compile modules, you need to have the following installed...
I have been using VMware Player for some time to host Fedora VMware images on Windows XP. I have been using Fedora 11 and 12 (both 32 and 64 bit) and recently started to use Fedora 13.
I use as a base the images provided by thoughtpolice. http://www.thoughtpolice.co.uk/
I usually install VMware tools and also keep the images updated (yum update) which sometimes changes the kernel.
I have recently had problems with the snapshots not having a network when I restore them. So far I don't have the problem with Fedora 11 and do have it with Fedora 12 (but used not to). I do have it with Fedora 13.
In each case the problem goes away when I uninstall the VMware tools and comes back when I install them again.
One of the symptoms is that SElinux complains about not being able to do something with /var/run/vmware-active-nics.
It looks to me that something is incorrect in the actions being taken when the snapshot is being restored. It does not happen every time and sometimes the network restores itself.
The network can be restored by rebooting the image.
I seem to be having a problem getting VMware 2.0.2-203138 installed on Fedora 13.I've downloaded the rpm from VWware's site, and ran rpm -iv VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.i386.rpmAfter I ran vmware-config.plIt came back saying it will use complier /usr/bin/gcc and asks me for the location of the C header files.I tell it /usr/src/kernels/18.104.22.168-147.2.4.fc13.i686/include but it comes back with the following error message
Code: The directory of kernel headers (version @@VMWARE@@ UTS_RELEASE) does not match your running kernel (version 22.214.171.124-147.2.4.fc13.i686). Even if the module were to
I have an i5 Thinkpad running Windows 7 64-bit. VT is enabled in the BIOS. I have installed vmware server v 2.0.2 but am unable to install Centos 5.5 x86_64 as a guest OS. The steps that I followed are as follows:1. Created a new VM, specifying RHEL 5 64-bit as the intended guest OS (per vmware documentation - Centos is not available as a selection2. Downloaded all 8 iso files for Centos v5.5 64-bit3. Modified the CD/DVD drive to 'connect at power' and use an iso with the path pointing to the x86_64 iso 1 of 8When I power up the VM, the console window displays 'ISOLINUX 3.11 2005-09-02 Copyright (C) 1994-2005 H. Peter Anvin' and nothing else. The installation splash screen never appears. As a test, I downloaded the first of 7 iso files for the 32-bit version of Centos 5.5 and pointed the CD/DVD drive to that iso. In that case, the installation starts as expected. I would really like to get the 64-bit version installed and running.

I wanted to explore Vmware ESX (Free Download) on my Linux Machine. What Package I need to install on Fedora ?
I've looked through the forums and found that installing openmotif may fix my problem. I tried it but to no avail. Here is my challenge, I'm trying to install Grid Engine on my VMWare fedora installation. I get this dependency error:
Quote: rpm -i sun-sge-bin-linux24-x64-6.2-5.x86_64.rpm error: Failed dependencies: libXm.so.3()(64bit) is needed by sun-sge-bin-linux24-x64-6.2-5.x86_64 libXp.so.6()(64bit) is needed by sun-sge-bin-linux24-x64-6.2-5.x86_64 sun-sge-common = 6.2 is needed by sun-sge-bin-linux24-x64-6.2-5.x86_64
I installed the latest version of openmotif and when I do a search for the two files, there is no libxm.so.3 but libxp.so.6 is there. When I try to install the rpm again I still get the exact same error.

Hi, I attempt to install f10 via dvd. I am asked about my language and keyboard. When I move on from here I get a message. the fedora disk was not found in any of your cdrom drivesI toddle off to my laptop and the install works fine My computer has 2 drives - CD & DVD. Does this message indicate that the computer is only looking at the CD drive. I guess I need to add some options to the install command.
i have recently got a system assembled with the following configuration

i have been trying to install fedora 10 since last week but i am not able to run it in gui mode the anaconda installer tells me failed to load in gui mode and running in text mode only. i am new to fedora and am next to unknown. what should be done to get the fedora running on me computer
During installation of fedora 10 i depare with a issue that requires internet connection to proceed the installation. since i don't have a internet connection in eth0 just have one in wlan0 that is not detected by the configuration i didi not could install the fedora 10. What was my mistake, i download the Fedora-10-i386-netinst.iso to boot. Should i download another image to boot.
Last week I put together a new build:Asus p6t deluxe v2, i7 920, etc etc And installed Win7 RC which worked perfectly, however for the past couple days I've been trying to install Fedora but it seems to never work. The F11 Full disk cannot load anaconda during install, but still manages to install, however the installation cannot boot. The live disk loads, but then a black screen with eth0 and eth1 link is down pops up. So I tried other dists, Ubuntu 8.04 cannot boot, 9.04 boots and installs, but after reboot doesnt work. Anyone got any ideas as to why I cannot install Linux. Also in Win7, I cannot install Fedora as a VM. It just goes to 100% load while booting and such.
Just installed a fresh copy of F10. After install, when I boot It goes through a screen where it shows 3 bars loading. Once the last bar (white) is finished, and fedora 10 becomes white, nothing happens. If i press any key, it will give me a msg saying something along the lines of "reading contents of drive vol000 this make take a while". I rebooted after 2 hours. When i came back, I waited 8 hours.
