Default vmplayer wont start

Hello!

I've installed vmware-player, but can't start it. It outputs a lot of
messages (none of them seems to be error msgs) and gives back the prompt:


localhost ~ # vmplayer

Content of the log file:

version=6.5.5 build=build-328052 option=Release

szept 08 10:21:19.939: app| Host codepage=UTF-8 encoding=UTF-8
szept 08 10:21:19.939: app| Logging to /tmp/vmware-root/setup-8401.log

I use version app-emulation/vmware-player-2.5.5.328052.
It wont start even if I add a virtual machine config file parameter to
vmplayer.

Is there any trick to start it?

Thanks,
István

Have you tried starting it as a plain user, or is vmplayer meant to be started
as root?
