VMWare, finally

Posted by : Rob Stevens | Saturday, November 26, 2005 | Published in

I managed to get VMWare Workstation running on my Suse box last night. I've been trying to get it to work for a few days, but it kept telling me that it was incorrectly configured. The version I was using (5.0.something) didn't have the right kernel module included so it was trying to build its own (which I suspect wasn't compiling properly and was probably what was causing my problem), so I had a look on the VMWare site and found they had released 5.5.something, so I got that, ran the installer, ran the config script, and it worked :). I can now run a fullscreen Windows XP system on top of my Linux system, which is nice. Totally unnecessary, but nice :). I think I'll give Solaris a go next - I like playing with different OS's so it'll be nice to be able to do so without fear of damaging other installs on a real machine.

Suse 10 is definitely growing on me.
