How To Install VMware-server-1.0.4 on Ubuntu Feisty Server

I found many great tutorials and howto’s but had to use several combinations before I ended up with a perfect installation of VMware 1.0.4 on my Feisty Server build. This will hopefully help the next troubled soul.

Lets assume this is a fresh new Feisty Server install and you’ve run all the necessary updates.

Next you’ll need to install a few things from a command line:

First off you’ll want to find out what version you have…

sudo uname -r

sudo aptitude install linux-headers-‘uname version here’

(Note: If you are using a 64 bit OS you may need to download the i386 version as well to help support the VMware package.)

sudo aptitude install libx11-6 libx11-dev libxtst6 xlibs-dev

sudo aptitude install gcc binutils-doc cpp-doc make manpages-dev autoconf automake1.9 libtool flex bison gdb gcc-doc

After I installed these I followed the rest of this tutorial and the setup went smoothly.
