    Default 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?*

    Please... does anyone know how to correctly install it from
    *.rpm-scratch?

    * 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' (http://tinyurl.com/57nl8b) if you have any questions.
