    Help installing vSphere CLI on Linux 64-bit

    beaconfield Enthusiast



      I am trying to get the vSphere CLI working on my Fedora 13 64-bit box and I'm running into an issue when I try to run commands after installation.  I downloaded the 64-bit tar.gz for the vSphere CLI 4.0 U2, unpacked it, and ran the installer script which completed flawlessly.  It installed all the right binaries under /usr/bin.  (Although during installation it asks me to overwrite a bunch of files in /usr/lib64/perl5/ and I just accepted the defaults)


      When I try to run a command, like vicfg-vswitch, i get the following error.


      /usr/bin/perl: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/perl5/auto/XML/LibXML/Common/Common.so: undefined symbol: Perl_Tstack_sp_ptr


      Essentially I can't even use the vCLI. 


      Does anyone know what the error means or have a good guide on installing the vCLI for Linux?  The VMware documentation doesn't give me information on how to deal with these errors.
