Hello:
Not 100% sure, but I thought you could install VMware server as long as you had the matching kernel-devel and kernel-headers ?
On the other hand I could be dead wrong??

googling revealed that i need a 32 bit environment, all the vmware modules compiled fine.

Hello:
It think all you need to do is install the correct i386 libraries et al
You most likely have the correct ones installed, if not then use yum to install them.
If you have trouble determining any missing dependencies then use yum whatprovides packagename
or install yumex
yum -y install yumex
and do a quick search

Just download the rpm and

rpm -ivh

unless you have a good reason to want to compile and configure the binaries?

If it installs fine then you are good to go, if not it will spit out what's missing and then you can use yum to install the packages.

steve, I tried what you told me, but, there isnt a simple package called i386,386,x86,32 bit....

I think I need to find a way of installing 32 bit lib without interfering with my os

Hello:
Did you try installing the vmware server rpm ?

VMware-server-1.0.1-29996.i386.rpm

It will/should not interfere with you OS in any way. As FC6 has the capability to run both 32 and 64 bit programs.

yes, i tried the rpm, however i am running FC5
Hello:
It really should not matter whether it is FC6 / FC5
when you tried the rpm what were the errors / dependency issues?

Hello:
I just installed VMware server on my FC6_86_64 using the rpm noted above.

So I am not quite sure what your problem is, it should work just fine.

Please try
yum install glibc*

then try
/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl
and if there are any errors post back

try

yum install libXtst.so.6

if this doesn't work try

yum provides libXtst.so.6
