Centos 4.3 x64 & VMWare Server Beta

Centos 4.3 x64 & VMWare Server Beta

[code:1:6d0b2c8c2f]
The correct version of one or more libraries needed to run VMware Server may be
missing. This is the output of ldd /usr/bin/vmware:
linux-gate.so.1 => (0xffffe000)
libm.so.6 => /lib/tls/libm.so.6 (0xf7fbd000)
libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0xf7fb9000)
libpthread.so.0 => /lib/tls/libpthread.so.0 (0xf7fa7000)
libX11.so.6 => not found
libXtst.so.6 => not found
libXext.so.6 => not found
libXt.so.6 => not found
libICE.so.6 => not found
libSM.so.6 => not found
libXrender.so.1 => not found
libz.so.1 => not found
libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/libc.so.6 (0xf7e7b000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xf7fe9000)

This program cannot tell for sure, but you may need to upgrade libc5 to glibc
before you can run VMware Server.

I couldn't install it because it was looking for the 32-bit libraries. The fix is from a friend:


yum install gcc glibc compat-libstdc* compat-glibc* compat-db* zlib zlib-devel*

yum install pam pam-devel

yum erase fontconfig

yum install xorg-x11-libs

yum install xorg-x11-devel


I make it farther but VMWare complains my kernel is not compatible and that it needs the C files from the current kernel to proceed which I don't have.

I downloaded and extracted this SRPM (http://mirrors.kernel.org/centos/4.3/os/SRPMS/kernel-2.6.9-34.EL.src.rpm) but it doesn't have the C files even after extracting the contents with rpm2cpio

I'm asking on the CentOS forums too but for now I'm taking a generic 2.6.9 kernel from kernel.org


I still can't get it to work but think I don't know where to tell VMWare to look

[code:1:06aca83a41]The path "/root/linux-2.6.9/kernel" is an existing directory, but it does not
contain at least one of these directories "linux", "asm", "net" as expected.
[/code:1:06aca83a41]


I still get this error even after installing the srpm and trying to point it to a gernic kernel directory. Maybe those files installed do provide what I need but I don't know what sub-dir that would be in if it's the case:

None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware GSX Server 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]

You guys are too slow :0

kernel-devel-2.6.9-34.EL.x86_64.rpm

you need kernel-devel and everything will go lovely after that.


Big thanks to the guy who gave the correct steps to make everything work on x64. I'm sure more and more will be using AMD 64 soon :)

Can't wait for VMWare Server to go stable/production/final!
