Vmware Server at Ubuntu Feisty 7.04

This step-by-step manual provides instructions on how to install freely available VMWare Server at Ubuntu Feisty Fawn Linux (7.04).

First of all download installation package here and get free serial code. To get VMWare Server working at Ubuntu 7.04 I recommend to download this patch.

To make sure there are all necessary tools installed to get VMWare Server running, execute:
sudo aptitude install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essentia xinetd

After it’s done unpack installation package and patch:
tar -xvzf VMware-server-1.0.3-44356.tar.gz
tar -xvzf vmware-any-any-update109.tar.gz

Then:
cd vmware-server-distrib
./vmware-install.pl

Choose defaults to questions until installer asks to run vmware-config.pl. Press no and install patch:
cd ../
cd vmware-any-any-update109
sudo ./runme.pl

Now it’s proper time to configure VMWare Server:
sudo vmware-config.pl

Just choose default values (it really worked for me).

When the installation is done, run
vmware

and proceed with using VMWare Server:
