Recently upgraded to 11.2, but I think it was a downgrade.
VMware 6.5.2 was working great on 11.1. On 11.2 it just fails miserably both during the install and trying to build the modules.
It’s all over the web about the issues, but none of them helped me.
So I downloaded VMware 6.5.4 and it hangs even worse during the VMware-Player configuration (doing a make I think).
So, let’s try out VMware 7. It installed great. Unfortunately I didn’t read the release notes - it requires a PAE processor, which I don’t have
So tried to uninstall VMware 7 so I could try just the VMware-Player free product.
VMware was not installed with rpm so rpm can’t uninstall it. Then removed all the files manually as per this VMware KB: Manually uninstalling VMware Workstation from Linux hosts
VMware-Player installation issues a popup saying “component vmware-workstation 7.0.0 has unsatisfied dependency: vmware-player-app=3.0.0.”
Before I go back to 11.1 or to some other distro, would anyone know how to really get rid of VMware 7 so that I can try the player only?
Note to self: if it ain’t broke, don’t upgrade ever again.
Thanks for any assistance,
