Default VMWare Workstation and Fedora 9?

Has anybody successfully configured VMWare Workstation (my version:
6.04, x86_64) for Fedora 9 (x86_64)? I have before me a fully-updated
fresh install of Fedora 9. I then install the VMware-workstation
package and run vmware-config.pl. The first complaint the script makes
is:

The following libraries could not be found on your system:
libX11.so.6
libXtst.so.6
libXext.so.6
libXrender.so.1
libz.so.1

even though each of those is clearly located in /usr/lib64. The
script, however, carries on. Later:

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]
/usr/src/kernels/2.6.25.14-108.fc9.x86_64/include

The directory of kernel headers (version 2.6.25.14-108.fc9.x86_64) does not
match your running kernel (version 2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64). Even if the module
were to compile successfully, it would not load into the running kernel.

What's up with that? The config script apparently doesn't like the
-108 in the kernel header version, which is missing from the kernel
version. Ack!

I've applied the any-any update (117 -- latest I could find).

And for completeness:

$ uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu May 1
06:06:21 EDT 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
$ rpm -qa | grep -i kernel
kernel-2.6.25.14-108.fc9.x86_64
kernel-headers-2.6.25.14-108.fc9.x86_64
kernel-devel-2.6.25.14-108.fc9.x86_64
kerneloops-0.11-1.fc9.x86_64
kernel-2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64

Has anybody got past this, or else done the install and not
experienced it? Ability to run VMWare is really a deal-breaker in my
situation. Any help at all is appreciated greatly.

Alan,
I'm running VMWare-server-1.0.6-91891.i386 on my F9.x86_64 laptop. I
applied vmware-any-any-update 117 and I do not have this problem. I'm
currently running on a 2.6.25.11-97.fc9.x86_64 kernel, but only because
I haven't rebooted in a while.

You have updated headers but aren't running the updated kernel. Check
your Grub options, you may have booted the wrong system.

Alan,

do you need both the kernel-2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64 and
kernel-2.6.25.14-108.fc9.x86_64 packages? That could be part of the
confusion with the source stuff.


And as far as the X11 libraries are concerned it appears that VMWare is
looking for the 32bit versions (/usr/lib) not the 64bit versions
(/usr/lib64).

I don't use vmware, but many folks on the #fedora irc channel have had
good luck using:

http://fedorasolved.org/server-solutions/vmserver-install

Perhaps the info there will help you...

Hi

I have VMworkstation working OK
VMwareWorkstation-6.0.4-93057.x86_64

Linux tarifa 2.6.25.14-108.fc9.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Aug 4 13:46:35 EDT 2008
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

but I don't believe WS it is a true 64bit app and hence needs
various .i386 libs.

At the time I used vmware-any-any-117-very-ALPHA.tgz
but I know that there are later ones now

I had to yum install
libX11.i386
libXtst.i386
libXrender.i386
zlib.i368 !!!!!!!!!!! to get libz !!!!!


I have subsequently taken a Window V/M Client from Workstation and run
it successfully under VMware Server 1.0.6
which did pleasantly surprise me !!!!

FWIW - VMware Workstation 6.5 Beta runs impressively well on F9. I've
been using it for quite a while now. As long as you have installed
kernel-devel and kernel-headers, you're pretty much good to go.

I don't really like the .bundle installer bit in Workstation 6.5, but it
does seem to both install and uninstall cleanly. I've done that several
times with no issues. I'd still like to see them stick to RPM and Deb
(for the Ubuntu folks) packages instead.

Oh well...

Cheers,

Chris

Apparently so. I installed the 32-bit libs and that complaint went away.

Thanks!

I thought sure I had rebooted after the update. Apparently, I'm an
idiot. After restart, I'm running the -108 kernel and the
vmware-config script is happy with the exception of vmblock, which I
can live without.

Thanks for all the helpful responses from everybody! I'm copying my
VMs over from my old system and don't expect to have any trouble
running them.

As a final follow up, so that the list archives contain the info, the
any-any patch was actually detrimental to this process. After
successfully running the config script, VMWare complained about a
mismatched vmmon version. I reinstalled the workstation rpm and reran
the vmware-config.pl script without applying the any-any patch and
VMWare is now running my VMs. (The only thing that didn't compile
correctly was vmblock, which I'm sure a future any-any patch will deal
with.)

This data corresponds to:
kernel version 2.6.25.14-108.fc9.x86_64
vmware version 6.04 x86_64
