Hello! We have a Debian 7.8 server, and I'm trying to start the vmware converter client. I followed the instructions here:
It said it installed with no problems. I initially got this error:
/usr/bin/vmware-converter-client: 206: exec: /usr/lib/vmware-vcenter-converter-standalone/converter-gui: not found
but I was able to fix it by following the instructions here:
dpkg --add-architecture i386
aptitude install ia32-libs
Now when I put in /usr/bin/vmware-converter-client, I get this error:
/usr/lib/vmware-vcenter-converter-standalone/converter-gui: error while loading shared libraries: libgthread-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I don't know how to proceed. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
Yesterday I had the same problems installing latest VMware Viewclient 3.4 on Ubuntu 14.04.3 / 64
Honestly I think you are wasting your time.
IMHO there is not a single good reason to install Converter on a Debian Host.
Just use an uptodate Windows 7 VM with latest Windows-Converter. Install Converter and run it "as admin"
I hope you realise that you need an ESXi host in case you want to P2V a physical Linux.
Even then I would not call the results more reliable as "hit or miss"
If you want to safe time probably doing a manual P2V will be a good idea for a skilled Debian-admin
