Bug#486507: #486507: Confirm this bug and workaround


I can confirme this strange bug too.
Vmware works fine on my lenny workstation but fails on my notebook (both are up-to-date lenny).

This workaround fixed the problem for me:

1. Get old libx11, example from etch.
2. Create directory $VMWARE/lib/libX11.so.6/ (where $VMWARE is the
installation directory of vmware-server-console)
3. Copy libX11.so.6* from etch's libx11-6_1.0.3XXXXX/usr/lib/ to
4. Edit $VMWARE/lib/wrapper-gtk24.sh (my vmware-server-client version:
--- wrapper-gtk24.sh.old        2008-07-17 10:39:40.000000000 +0200

  # FontConfig is actually fairly well behaved but the fonts.conf that we
  # force when VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_GTK=yes generates seemingly harmless
5. it works!
