SDB:Creating New Users in VMware 4.0.2 Is Not Possible

Şuraya atla: kullan, ara


Version: 9.0

Symptom

In spite of having selected the option Host-Only Networking when setting up VMware, you are not able to create any new users. The following error message is displayed:

/usr/bin/vmware-smbpasswd.bin: error while loading shared libraries:
libpopt.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Cause

The file libpopt.so.0 is included in the package popt-1.6.x. However, SUSE LINUX 9.0 contains a new version (popt-1.7.x) of this package, and thus this file is no longer available.

Solution

Create a symbolic link to the current libpopt.so.1:

ln -s /usr/lib/libpopt.so.1 /usr/lib/libpopt.so.0
