Use this package to install the packages required to run vmware locally.
This package does not include the free vmware-server or vmware-server-console
package itself. They can be obtained from the vmware website.
rpmlint is not clean:
vmware-requirements.src:45: E: hardcoded-library-path in
vmware-requirements.src:47: E: hardcoded-library-path in /usr/lib/libX11.so.6
vmware-requirements.src:49: E: hardcoded-library-path in /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6
vmware-requirements.src:51: E: hardcoded-library-path in /usr/lib/libXt.so.6
vmware-requirements.i386: W: no-documentation
vmware-requirements.i386: E: no-binary
vmware-requirements-server.i386: W: no-documentation
vmware-requirements-server.i386: E: devel-dependency kernel-devel
vmware-requirements-server-console.i386: W: no-documentation
4 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 6 errors, 3 warnings.
1. Is there a way in an x86_64 .spec require an eg gtk2.i386 package, without
resorting to named file path Requires ?
2. I can make some small readme files to satisfy the no-documentation warnings
3. No binary is correct. The top level package pulls in the 2x sub packages,
for the case where you want to run the vmware-server-console on the same
machine as the vmware-server.
4. This does not require the VMware's non-open source vmware-server rpms. It
only provides an easy way to get prerequisite packages installed so that
vmware-server package can run, which saves a lot of messing around.
5. Is it worth changing the name to vmware-prerequisites:
$ su -c 'yum install vmware-prerequisites' might be clearer ?
