Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron & VMware Server

If you’ve just upgraded to Hardy Heron and found that VMware Server no longer works, take a look at Installing VMware 6.0.2 and VMware Server on Ubuntu Hardy 8.04. You’ll find an explanation of what needs to be changed and, even better, a patched version of vmware-any-any-update115 that’ll make it work!

If you were already running VMware Server, chances are that the upgrade included all the build files, but just in case it didn’t, this command wil get them for you:

sudo aptitude install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential
