I have just updated my main install, for the first time for a good while, and now my VMWare Server will not work.
The app starts as normal. However, if I attempt to power on one of my VMs, I get the following:
Unable to change virtual machine power state: The process exited with an error:
End of error message.
I then ran vmware-config.pl from the terminal, but while doing so I got following message:
Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "4.1.1", while you are trying to use
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.4.1". This configuration is not recommended and
VMware Server may crash if you'll continue. Please try to use exactly same
compiler as one used for building your kernel. Do you want to go with compiler
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.4.1" anyway?
I answered "yes" - the configuration appeared to complete and I was able to enter my serial no and finish off. However, re-starting vmware and attempting to power up a VM I get the same message about VM power state.
Any suggestions, anyone? I am running kernel 184.108.40.206 tex3. Do I need a higher version, and if so will I find it in the main section of the repo?
Many thanks in anticipation.
