is there something wrong with the mail archive search scripts? I always
seem to get 'list unavailable' :-(
Anyway - 5_1 on Dell Latitude C640. the vmware3 port installs but the
paths are a little odd - isoimages, licences are looked for in
/usr/lib/vmware rather than /usr/local/lib....
I installed (w2k) a guest and it is fine but I cannot get networking
host-only or bridge modes as the vmnet1 interface IP isn't found
which indicates it hasn't found the config file in
/usr/local/ - I tried sym-linking it to /etc/vmware/config but still
Anyone got it working? I suspect vmware2 might work - next plan....
Tantalisingly close to working...
but of course after going in circles for a couple of hours I may have
missed something obvious.
