VmWare Server 1.0.4 on Ubuntu Server 7.04 (a.k.a Feisty Fawn)

2 days after my previous post about installing VmWare Server 1.0.3 from Canonical’s repository, VmWare released version 1.0.4.

I tried using its built-in install script on a vanilla Ubuntu Server 7.04 (a.k.a Feisty Fawn) and it worked flawlessly.

Aside from certain libraries which it needs to compile the vmmon and vmnet kernel modules (the installation script will tell you which ones are missing and you can get them from the repositories using apt-get), you’ll also need to install xinetd.

All in all, the installation script did all the job and it works fine without patching the vmmon code.

Keep up the good work VmWare Team!
