I have Mandriva 2008 64 bits and I'm trying vmware workstation 6.0.2. When I try to start a Windows XP Professional virtual machine I get the next error message:
"Unable to change virtual machine power state: Failed to connect to peer process."
I have found that this problem is solved in Ubuntu just installing ia32-libs package but I didn't find an equivalent one for Mandriva 2008.
No idea if this can be answered by anyone: more details please (from logs etc)
