installing vmware server 2.0 on ubuntu 10.4 beta

Nobody i know seems to use vmware on ubuntu, but i will post this here, because i was having major problems compiling the vmware modules successfully using the latest beta of ubuntu. since i was using my pc as my media center, i forgot how much of a pain in the donkey it was to get vmware to work after every kernel upgrade being you have to run afterwards for the services to start. initial install was simple with these steps:

  • download vmware server 2.0 in tar.gz format
  • download this script to same folder (credits to “Ramon de Carvalho Valle”)
  • with root privileges, run ./
  • proceed as normal.

worked for me, after hours of wasting my time 🙂
