    Talking VMware Workstation as *.rpm

    Jo.

    I've downloaded the current version of VMware Workstation (VMware-Workstation-6.5.1-126130.x86_64.rpm) and stzarted installation via YAST.

    YAST actually starts... but then quits rapidly without leaving a message. When looking it up via console, WMware Workstation is installed. I can't find a graphical menue either.


    What went wrong?

    * TheMask,

    open a console, become root, then try and run vmware-config.pl
    Does that work?

    There is no more vmware-config.pl in Workstation or Player.

    To install rpm, first remove it from inside YaST Software Management. Now open a root console and install with:
    rpm -Uhv VMpackagename.rpm where package name is the package. I find that after you cd to where you d/l it, it is easiest to simply type the first few letters and hit the Tab key to auto complete it. See the Topic here if you have any questions.
