Vmware on Ubuntu

Many users who have already tried Vmware , but not Vbox will have there Vmx images for them installing Vmware is better an option rather than Vbox , so i have made a small script to install Vmware

Here is the script : Run as root ( sudo su )


# Get VMware Server

wget -c http://download3.vmware.com/software/vmserver/VMware-server-1.0.7-108231...

# Get path

wget -c http://www.insecure.ws/warehouse/vmware-update-2.6.27-5.5.7-2.tar.gz

# Required tools

aptitude install build-essential linux-kernel-headers xinetd

# Extract and install

tar xf vmware-update*.tar.gz

tar xf VMware-server*.tar.gz

cd vmware-server-distrib/

sudo ./vmware-install.pl

# Patch

cd ../vmware-update*/

sudo ./runme.pl

Save this to a file , say vm.sh , chmod 777 vm.sh and ./vm.sh , will do the job
