Cause i got stuck configuring virtual LTSP network with VirtualBox, so i installing a vmware server 1.0.8 (latest when i writing this tuts) on my Linux Ubuntu Hardy (but will work on the other distro well)

Here is my steps :

1. Download the vmware server 1.0.8

$ wget -c http://download3.vmware.com/software/vmserver/VMware-server-1.0.8-126538.tar.gz

2. Get the serial-number for your vmware, go to here

3. Before install the vmware, we’ve to install some dev tools

$ sudo aptitude install build-essential linux-kernel-devel linux-headers-generic xinetd

4. Extract the tarball, change to its directory and install it

$ tar xf VMware-server-1.0.8-126538.tar.gz
$ cd vmware-server-distrib

$ sudo ./vmware-install.pl

5. Answer the questions. Most question i’ve answer the default answer :p

6. Its installation will end with some error occured, causes some library link unavailable.

to fix it just :

$ sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/gcc/i486-linux-gnu/4.2.3/libgcc_s.so /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libgcc_s.so.1/libgcc_s.so.1
sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0 /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libpng12.so.0/libpng12.so.0

7. To test run

$ vmware
