    install: %pre scriptlet failed [resolved]

    jerkface Lurker

      I am trying to install the beta on a new installation of rhel5. I installed rhel with all of the default options. rpm -Uvh gives this error message.

       

      rpm -Uhv /tmp/VMware-server-e.x.p-63231.i386.rpm

      Preparing...                ###########################################

       

      error: %pre(VMware-server-e.x.p-63231.i386) scriptlet failed, exit status 1

      error:   install: %pre scriptlet failed (2), skipping VMware-server-e.x.p-63231

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      I also tried 

       

       

       

      rpm -Uhv /tmp/VMware-server-e.x.p-63231.i386.rpm --noscripts
