When trying to install VMWare workstation on BT4 pre final I get the following error:
root@BT:~# rpm -i VMware-Workstation.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
/bin/sh is needed by VMware-Workstation-6.5.1-126130.i386
I forced the install by using:
rpm -i VMware-Workstation.rpm --nodeps
When trying to follow your guide below, I got the following error:
root@BT:~# rmmod kvm_intel kvm
ERROR: Module kvm_intel does not exist in /proc/modules
ERROR: Module kvm does not exist in /proc/modules
I have tried converting the .rpm into a .deb using:
fakeroot alien --scripts VMware-Workstation.rpm
This enabled the file to install without any error messages, but the modules still do not compile. I retried: rmmod kvm_intel kvm and got the same error message.
Needless to say I'm a little stumped!
EDIT: I skipped through the guide and started with the wget line and everything else has worked perfectly. Should have tried that really before making this post.
