    Default VMWare Server Install

    Okay... so I'm using openSuse 11.1. I can't for the life of me get VMWare to configure right/run on my system. After install, when I run it, I get:

    @@PRODUCT_NAME@@ is installed, but it has not been (correctly) configured
    for the running kernel. To (re-)configure it, invoke the
    following command: /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl.
    When I try to run that I get:

    Making sure services for VMware Server are stopped.

    Stopping VMware autostart virtual machines:
    Virtual machines failed
    Stopping VMware management services:
    VMware Virtual Infrastructure Web Access
    VMware Server Host Agent failed
    Stopping VMware services:
    VMware Authentication Daemon done
    Virtual machine monitor done

    You must read and accept the End User License Agreement to continue.
    Press enter to display it.
    After reading it, I try to run VMWare, and same cycle begins again. Any tips to get this puppy running?

    Hi
    Instead of reading, press q (to quit) and then you need to accept to
    continue the rest of the install process of building the modules. You
    also need to install kernel-source make gcc and probably kernel-syms.

    Hi
    Have you installed the files I mentioned, kernel-source etc? It should
    default to those locations if they are installed eg [/usr/src/linux]

    I did install those. Apparently, I must have been typo-ing, because it did eventually work based on the default directory it was recommendinng. Thanks. Now I have successfully installed Server. How do I get into server to create a new VM?
