    VMware Player 5.0.2 on Slackware 14 host - installation trouble?

    ericwebb Lurker

      Hello - I'm trying to install Player 5.0.2 on a headless Slack 14 system.  I am invoking the installer as root with the '--console' parameter to eliminate some of the GTk failures I see in /var/log/vmware-installer.   The install proceeds until the 'USB Arbitrator' step and then appearrs to hit a problem and rolls back the entire install.  Any ideas?
