I am trying to install the VMware server 2.0 in a Debian Lenny sid machine. I found this tutorials that seems good tutorialshttp://www.howtoforge.com/debian_etch_v ... rver_howtohttp://failserver.nl/blog/?p=11
After browsing the search files in the forum for VMware installations i decided to post the problem i have.
After following all the instructions from the first weblink i came to the point that i have to download with wget the URL from VMware. I am typing the URL correct as i copy it from the VMware website after login. the URL is https://www.vmware.com/tryvmware/p/acti ... 386.tar.gz
It comes out that i have this error.
ERROR: canot verify http://www.vmware.coms
certificate,issued by /C=US/O=Akmai technologies Inc/CN=Akmai Subordinate CA3`:
Unable to locally verify the issuers authority.
To connect to http://www.vmware.com
insecurely, use `--no-check-certificate`
Unable to establish SSL connection
I tried many times but the same error. I disable the firewall of my router as well but again the same results.
Then find out that i had to upgrade the cerificates in my machine so i
apt-get install ca-certificates
After done i typed again the URL as above.
Now it connects to the server and downloads only a flie called index.php which is a text file. I do not know where i am doing wrong.
I proceed and dowload the tar.gz file transfered it to my USB and mount it in the Debian machine. Created a directory and uncopressed it there with tar xvfz but had many errors and found no ./vmware-install.pl to compile
Later i tried to connect from a windows xp as per the second web link using the psftp.exe. I can not connect to the Debian machine as root. Is there any other way to connect to windows XP machine from the Debian terminal (as root) and transfer the file tar.gz so to proceed with the installation??
I manged to start the installation by updating the gcc
with apt-get install gcc-4.1
I left my errors in this post if in case any other user may have the same problems.
Ok now i have this problem and i can not find a way to overpass it. At a point of the installation it is asking this
What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/lib/modules/2.6.18-4-486/build/include]<-- /lib/modules/2.6.8-2-386/build/include
My installation shows What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]<-- When i press enter it shows my again the same.
I am trying to comment /lib/modules/2.6.8-2-386/build/include but i does not move asking the same as above. I Aborted and checked the gcc again. I have the gcc4.3.
I am trying to have the Debian lenny as hosted OS and windows XP as host OS.Is it possible both of he OS to work in the same machine with VMware??
Thank you very much
