If you want a easy installation of Vmware Workstation on Arch64 follow these steps:

- Install and run xinetd

- Download the tar.gz version of Vmware-Workstation-64bits (you need to register before)


(The next steps are taken from the original article)

- mkdir -p /etc/rc.d/vmware.d/rc{0,1,2,3,4,5,6}.d

- ln -s /bin/lsmod /sbin/lsmod

- run vmware-install.pl

- when it asks where the directories for rc0.d thru rc6.d are, use /etc/rc.d/vmware.d.

- when it asks where the init directory is, use /etc/rc.d.

- run vmware-config.pl


- Install emul32-xlibs from aur (remember change arch parameter from PKGBUILD)

- Add this lines to /etc/ld.so.conf

  /opt/lib32/lib
  /opt/lib32/usr/lib
  /emul/linux/x86/lib
  /emul/linux/x86/usr/lib
  /emul/linux/x86/usr/qt/3/lib

- Run ldconfig


- RUN IT!!

Is this wiki still current for Noodle (0.7.1)? Do these same instructions apply for installing VMPlayer by itself?
Thanks

yes, still current for Noodle 0.7.1. Still not too sure about the requirement for 'chmod 660 /dev/vmmon', though. What's the reason for that, as opposed to the 'chmod 600' for the rest of the nodes created by the script in /dev?

Maybe chmod 660 is needed for allowing adding some user who will monitor /dev/vmmon to vmware group.

I had problems compiling kernel modules for vmware 5.0.5 (i think was gcc guilty there - i had 4.0.3 instead 3.x) - It complained about network modules - could not compile due some error. After upgraded to latest version - all went smooth - without installing other gcc version - (gcc 4.0.3-3)

Cannot compile modules for 2.6.20

* Solved with ABS's PKGBUILD. Thanks to all.

I cannot compile VMware-workstation-5.5.3-34685 modules for 2.6.20 ARCH kernel, with the vmware-any-any-update101.tar.gz and executing runme.pl:

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
