    Installing vCLI on Ubuntu Server 9.04

    cookieme Expert



      I not very familiar with Linux/ UNIX, but I have setup an Ubuntu Server 9.04 minimal install as a VM and I am trying to install vCLI. I went through the manual and this particular Ubuntu version is not on the supported list, so I went ahead and first installed all the pre-requisites:


      - Linker utility (binutils package)

      - GNU C libraries (glibc or libc6 package) 

      - XML DOM/SAX libraries (libxml2 package)

      - Perl documentation (perl-doc) package

      - Perl URI library (liburi-perl package)

      - libssl-dev


      After installing the above I ran the following commands:


      untar -xf vmware_vcli.tar.gz

      cd vmware-vsphere-cli-distrib

      sudo ./vmware-install.pl


      It asks me if I want to overwrite some perl modules, so I answer the default yes and then the installer finishes successfully.


      However, when I cd /usr/bin and try to run any command such as vmware-cmd I get the following error:


      /usr/bin/perl: symbol  lookup error: /usr/lib/perl/5.10/auto/XML/LibXML/Common/Common.so: undefined symbol: Perl_Tstack_sp_ptr


      What am I doing wrong?
