VMware Player in Lucid Lynx

May 19th, 2010 | Tags: , ,

As always after a kernel update, VMware Player 2.5.xx asks to be recompiled after upgrading to Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid). However during the compilation I got errors about virtual network device, even after trying to recompile several times including from command line.

After struggling for some time, I thought I would check on the VMware website whether there is a new version of the software; and indeed VMware Player is now in version 3. After installing it (by downloading and running the .bundle file) everything works fine in Lucid. As a side note, the compilation dialogue does not come up and the look and feel of the Player is also quite different.
