    Unable to install Workstation 7 linux host

      Problem:

       

       

      1. sh VMware-Workstation-Full-7.0.0-203739.x86_64.bundle

       

       

      does not run in less than a second is back into the prompt.

       

       

       

       

       

      ref:

       

       

      opensuse 11.1  // 2.6.27.37-0.1-default

       

       

      kde 4.2.1

       

       

      Description: I had installed Workstation 6.5.3 running without problem. After I run the script VMware window came saying if I wanted to remove VMware. Vmaware 6.5.3 was removed, I close the window and nothing else happens. I tried to run it again and no success. I wonder if the problem is in my end but (1) everything seems to running well (2) VMware workstation 6.5.3 was running well (3) I can run other scripts without problem. (4) I made the script exec jic with no effect.

       

       

      Any tip in which direction should I look at it>

          The following is a summary of my problem after few attempts

           

           

          opensuse 11.1

           

           

          kde 4.2.1

           

           

          compiz-fusion

           

           

          1. I have running great workstation 6.5.3

           

           

          2. I run the script

           

           

          #sh  VMware-Workstation-Full-7.0.0-203739.x86-64.bundle  without any parameter

           

           

          Uninstall completes Ok then nothing happens.

           

           

          I run the script again and nothing happens just go to next prompt and no error messages.

           

           

          I

          try to run any of the old scripts like the one for 6.5.3 and it does

          not run either. However many month ago when I install opensuse 11.1 it

          installed OK

           

           

          3. I reinstall the partitions from backup so I'm back with vmware 6.5.3 working well

           

           

          4. I uninstall it but this time using /usr/bin/vmware-uninstall and installation is removed.

           

           

          5. I try to run the script again and the same problem.

           

           

          May be distro related but I can not figure out why.
