SDB:Configuration of VMware with SUSE LINUX 9.0
You want to install VMware Workstation on SUSE LINUX version 9.0.
Install the latest version of the VMware package. Update versions are available at http://www.vmware.com/de/download/.
Make sure that the kernel sources are installed on your system. The kernel sources are located in the package kernel-source, which can be installed with YaST2. The kernel source package must be consistent with the running kernel. If necessary, use YOU (YaST Online Update) to update both kernel and kernel sources to the current version.
Configure the kernel sources by executing the following commands:
cd /usr/src/linux make cloneconfig && make dep
Download the updated sources of the VMware kernel modules from the FTP server:
The sources are located in the package vmware-any-any-updateXY.tar.gz (XY stands for the current package version).
After unpacking the package into a directory (e.g., /tmp), change to that directory and start the program runme.pl. This can be done, for example, with the following commands (make sure you use the actual package name):
tar xvzf vmware-any-any-update50.tar.gz cd vmware-any-any-update50 ./runme.pl
By executing these commands, the updated sources of the VMware kernel modules are copied to the directory /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source and the VMware configuration script vmware-config.pl is launched. Follow its instructions carefully.
Note: The configuration of VMware exceeds the scope of the free-of-charge installation support. <keyword>vmware,workstation,vmware-config.pl,kernel,module,9.0,90</keyword>
