    Installation on OpenSUSE 11 fails...

    MHammock Lurker


      I initiallyed played with VMware Server a couple of years ago and am taking another look now.  Figured I might as well jump right to 2.0 since that is the apparent direction. I'm trying to install Server 2.0 Beta RC2 on top of a freshly installed and updated OpenSUSE 11.0.  Using the rpm I get:



      x232s11:/tmp # rpm -i VMware-server-2.0.0-110949.i386.rpm

      error: failed to stat /var/lib/gdm/.gvfs: Permission denied

      Use of uninitialized value $status in numeric ne (!=) at - line 1255.

      Unable to find the answer INITSCRIPTSDIR in the installer database

      (/etc/vmware/locations). You may want to re-install VMware Server.


      Execution aborted.



      error: %pre(VMware-server-2.0.0-110949.i386) scriptlet failed, exit status 1

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



      Any suggestions?  Since I'm running as root, I'm nor sure why I would be getting a 'permisisons' problem...
