install vmware on PClinuxOS big daddy


How I got vmware (5.5.1) and vmplayer installed so a non-root account can use it
note: a $ sign means while logged in as your user account; a # means while logged in as root.
$ uname -r
2.6.16.27.tex1.lve
this is the kernel version off the live cdrom 0.93a big daddy
VMWARE

$ cd ~
$ tar -xzvf vmware-[your version].tar.gz
$ su –
# cd /home/[user]/vmware-distrib
# ./vmware-install.pl

follow all the prompts until you get to…………….

Before running VMware Workstation for the first time, you need to configure it
by invoking the following command: “/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl”. Do you want this
program to invoke the command for you now? [yes]

type in “no”

now exit out of this installation procedure……………..

download vmware-any-any-update104.tar.gz
http://ftp.cvut.cz/vmware

$ extract vmware-any-any-update104.tar.gz into user home directory

$ su –

as root

# cd /home/[user]/vmware-any-any-update104
# ./runme.pl

follow all the prompts until you get to…………….

Before running VMware for the first time after update, you need to configure it
for your running kernel by invoking the following command:
“/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl”. Do you want this script to invoke the command for you now? [no]

Once successfully installed, as a regular user type in

$ vmware
