    Default Getting VMware to run on openSUSE 11.1

    Hi all.
    Advanced warning vmware won't run on 11.1. Ran the installer (VMware-Workstation-6.5.1-126130.x86_64.bundle) and got no errors but when i ran vmware in a console got:
    Logging to /tmp/vmware-geoff/setup-8579.log
    /usr/share/themes/Clearlooks/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:72: error: unexpected identifier `colorize_scrollbar', expected character `}'

    (vmware-modconfig:8579): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "qtcurve",
    /usr/share/themes/Clearlooks/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:72: error: unexpected identifier `colorize_scrollbar', expected character `}'

    modinfo: could not find module vsock
    /usr/bin/vmware: line 31: 8579 Segmentation fault "$BINDIR"/vmware-modconfig --appname="VMware Workstation" --icon="vmware-workstation"
    Probably a bug googled but found no similar errors so i guess it's to do with openSUSE.
    I'll wait a day or 2 and try to see if i can fix it before reporting a bug

    I had VMWare Server 2-something running on 11.1 Beta 5. The new format was so complicated & learning curve so steep that I just parked it and went with VirtualBox-2.0.6 (AMD version, not rpm OSE) which IMO is really neat & easy.

    How does VB compare to VMW when it comes to performance I need to run M$ server2003 and Visual Studio
    Already upgraded by main machine. Made a complete backup first so I could go back to 11.0 if needed which I am going to do tonight.

    Have also noticed GTK errors when installing other stuff!

    I can't tell any difference but that doesn't mean a lot to a power user.

    VMserver has gone to a browser config which was not intuitive (at least to me) -- but the version I tried installed w/o problems. I liked it better when the config was in the base GUI.

    One could try their Forum: VMware Communities

    VMserver2: VMware Communities: VMWare Server 2.0 loosing configuration ...

    I didn't have that problem, but maybe I didn't get that far. I'll try it again when I have the time

    Configuring bridged networking for Virtualbox sucks terribly. I'll wait
    for a working version of VMWare.

    Sure is; the gift one I downloaded & updated with KDE4 stable:
    OS: Linux 2.6.27.7-9-default x86_64
    Current user: jim@linux-d9wa
    System: openSUSE 11.1 (x86_64)
    KDE: 4.1.3 (KDE 4.1.3) "release 4.9"

    Type "vmware" in a terminal,
    To get the localhost up I have to login as root in the popup window -- I see a permissions thing to look at later.
    I have the VM setup using the controls in the right window, but
    when I click on the "Console" tab, I'm hung up on loading the "Remote Console" tool in Firefox (which I have to have to get to a console" for further install of winxp).
    When I figure that out I should be home free; although it may have something to do with the warnings I had.
    When I get the time, I'll install dazuko & redirfs and then re-compile the modules. I may have to wait for the 11.1 repos to do that.

    Like I said, there's a learning curve
    new stuff is never simple
