Installing VMware server 2.0.2 on debian 6.0.1 X64
Download VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64.tar.gz from the vmware website and place it in /usr/src (you need to register on the VMware website before you can download)
Download my install file below and unpack it to /usr/src:
cd /usr/src wget http://www.troublenow.org/files/vmware/vmware2.0.2-on-debian6.0.1.tar.gz tar xvzf vmware2.0.2-on-debian6.0.1.tar.gz cd /usr/src/vmware2 sh install-vmware-2.0.2.sh
This wil unpack the files, patch them for debian 6.0.1 and start the vmware installation.
Answer all the questions during the vmware install and the installation should complete.
Now reboot the server and you should be ready to go.
The above vmware2.0.2-on-debian6.0.1.tar.gz file has the following content:
00-vmware-2.6.32_functional.diff 01-vmware-2.6.32_cosmetic.diff 02-vmnet-include.diff install-vmware-2.0.2.sh patch-vmware_2.6.3x.sh vmware-config.pl.diff
All files except install-vmware-2.0.2.sh are from NerdbyNature.de with some small modifications.
install-vmware-2.0.2.sh is a simple setup script I created for easy install.
