step 4


copy over the Vmware file when its downloads to the Opensuse PC IF! Its was downloaded on another PC

use a tool like winscp to copy it over
or if u got a local web server copy the file over to it and wget address/filename
local as in on your LAN network

in the screen shots you will see both
WinSCP

log in as root user on the Opensuse box
than find your way to the tmp folder
than click and drag the file Vmware-workstation-XXXXXXXXXXXX.rpm to the winSCP window
let go and click on copy when its comes up
once done
in the putty windows or the term
type in as root user

cd /tmp


than go to step 5
 

 


in putty type :
 

cd /tmp <enter>
wget pc2.lan:88/linux.appz/Vmware-workstation-5.5.3-34682.i386.rpm



( NOTE : thats my privte LAN address to a pc where i keep a lot of my linux files to )
replace the info thats needs to be replaced with the right info for your setup

 

step5 : Vmware install
 

the easy step :
make sure you are in the same folder as you copyed the vmware-workstation RPM file to :)

rpm -i Vmware-workstation-5.5.3-34685.i386.rpm <enter>

 

Step 6


Step 6.1 : tips thats it
*** push enter : than at the end of it to get out of the EULA push q ****
        * it took me a while to work it out myself *

 

push q to get out of it :)
 Welcome to my how to install Vmw

Step 6.2


type in

vmware-config.pl <enter>


( what you see is an output from my putty session when i installed Vmware on opensuse :)

Trying to find a suitable vmmon module for your running kernel.

None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Workstation is suitable for your
running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes]

Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.


What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/lib/modules/2.6.18.2-34-default/build/include] <enter>
