I’m having trouble configuring a recently purchased copy of WMware-Workstation-6.5.0.-118166.i386.rpm for linux. I’ve followed closely the following two guides.
Having installed the rpm file, then extracted the vmware-any-any-update115.tar.gz.tar file, the problem i’ve run into is at the point I run the runme.pl script as outlined in section 6 of the first link and “download and apply vmware-any-any-update” section of the second link.
Instead of recieving the expected script prompts, my machine returns the following:
“Unable to open the installer database /etc/vmware/locations in read-mode
I’ve looked for the subdirectories “vmware” and “locations”, these do not exist on my system. I guess these should have been created as part of the rpm install. I’ve also looked for the vmware-config.pl file and can’t find this either. I’m wondering if the rpm is installed correctly.
Any help to install vmware would be appreciated.
