I am trying to install VMWare3 on FreeBSD 6.1 from the ports.

During intall I get this error:

=> SHA256 Checksum OK for rpm/i386/fedora/4/zlib-
===>   linux_base-fc-4_1 depends on file: /usr/local/bin/rpm2cpio - found
===>  Patching for linux_base-fc-4_1

===>  Installing for linux_base-fc-4_1

===>  linux_base-fc-4_1 conflicts with installed package(s):

       They install files into the same place.
       Please remove them first with pkg_delete(1).
*** Error code 1

*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/emulators/vmware3.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/emulators/vmware3.

I do understand the conflict, but I am not sure what the best way to 
handle this is. Trying to remove linux_base, gives a lot of work since a 
lot of other stuff depends upon that.

Any recommendations?

Another question, regarding speed and ease of configuration, which is 
recommended: VMWare vs. Qemu?

Best and kind regards,
