UPDATE: VMWare Server on Ubuntu (apt-get baby!)

Oh man! I am such an idiot! I'm not sure why I made it all hard on myself. There is a repository where you can apt-get the VMWare server install now.

Instead of killing yourself doing what is mentioned in my previous post, just do the following:

edit your /etc/apt/sources.list file by opening your terminal and typing:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the following line at the end and save the file:

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu feisty-commercial main

Next, in the terminal run:

sudo apt-get update

After you are done updating, now we run apt-get in all of it's glory:

sudo apt-get install vmware-server vmware-tools-kernel-modules

Follow the prompts, and your done!

(Note, you will still need to register for your free serial at VMWare.com)

[EDIT] - Trying to Install VMWare on Ubuntu 9.04? Check out my post here: (Install VMWare Serve 2 on Ubuntu 9.04 Server)
