successfully. You can decide to remove this software from your system at
time by invoking the following command: "/usr/bin/vmware-uninstall.pl".
Before running VMware Player for the first time, you need to configure
invoking the following command: "/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl". Do you want
program to invoke the command for you now? [yes]
The following libraries could not be found on your system:
You will need to install these manually before you can run VMware
mkb@amd64:~$ locate libX11.so.6
So, I'm confused!
Fantastic! Installing ia32-libs did the trick!
Now if only I could work out how to make some folders on my amd64 Debian
system appear on the WinXP virtual machine (without dragging them)!
Samba? Or you can use the shared folders option of vmware.
If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
