    Installing Server RC2 over RC1 - returns "You cannot install VMware Server on a system running a xwn kernel

    tkummell Novice

       

      I have an existing RHELV4 Update 4  X86_64 host that is currently running VMware Server beta RC1.  I downloaded the new RC2 rpm and attempted a rmp -Uvh rpmname.  The results were the message in the subject line.  Here is the complete dialog:

       

       

            # rpm -Uvh VMware-server-2.0.0-110949.x86_64.rpm

      +     You cannot install VMware Server on a system running a xen kernel+

       

       

      +     error: %pre(VMware-server-2.0.0-110949.x86_64) scriptlet failed, exit status 1+

      +     error:   install: %pre scriptlet failed (2), skipping VMware-server-2.0.0-110949+

      Any ideas?
