I had read some good comments regarding this application. but i keep on ignoring and still using Virtualbox a my default virtual machine so i can run a guest OS on my Ubuntu, but after having this bad outcome from virtualbox i finally decided to try out this VMware,
At first attempt id say it was a disaster it turn out that i did something wrong. so i google out to find any guides but all those guides still leads me up messing the installation.. i was really unlucky in finding ways to install this application but i didnt lose hope that i can try this thing.. after an hour of googling i did installed the VMwar. will her are the process i did make to make things work.
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r` xinetd
tar -xzvf VMware-server-1.0.3-44356.tar.gz
tar -xzvf vmware-any-any-update114.tar.gz
cp vmware-any-any-update114/*.tar vmware-server-distrib/lib/modules/source/
sudo mkdir -p /etc/vmware/ssl
sudo touch /etc/vmware/ssl/rui.key
sudo touch /etc/vmware/ssl/rui.crt
The GUI of the application wasnt bad at all.. i did get along to it. coz its not far on how the virtual box look so i did start to set a new guest OS, its XP, will setting up a new virtual machine in VMware take quit long than VirtualBox and even the OS installation took a while.. but still its up and running, i wasnt expecting it to be like this coz in Virtualbox installing a guest OS is realy fast.. i did installed XP in just less than 20 mins. But the funny thing is this new windows install i had.. its new..and with funny things in it.. click the image to see….
