Hi,

I emerged vmware-workstation 6.5 (from the vmware overlay) and configured it like normal. When I run "vmware" I get this error:
Code:
Logging to /tmp/vmware-root/setup-9287.log
I/O warning : failed to load external entity "/opt/vmware/server/lib/modules/modules.xml"


That file (the whole directory) does not exist. Is there something more I can do to get it working, or is the ebuild just not finished yet? Thanks. :)

You probably want vmware-modules as well.

I had a similar problem where vmware-workstation was looking for modules.xml in /opt/vmware/player/... . Creating a link to /opt/vmware/workstation solved the problem.

Hi. vmware-modules is a dependency of vmware-workstation, so yes it was already installed.

The symlink did the trick:
Code:
ln -s /opt/vmware/workstation /opt/vmware/server


Thanks for your help :)
