Running a VMware virtual machine or virtualization data center is indeed declaring yourself to be at the height of technological breakthroughs in the 21st century. But what if you use a non-windows platform and still want the benefit of using a virtual machine appliance or system? Is there any other way for non-windows users to integrate such a system in their own freeware operating systems? Simply put, how can Linux users, especially those who have chosen the way of the Ubuntu, get around such a problem? The answer is to look for a solution to this by using a patch. If you look hard enough, there is a solution for the VMware-server-1.0.5-80187 so you can run it in Ubuntu Hardy.
Of course, the prerequisite to this is to make sure that you have already taken the necessary steps and have upgraded your existing Ubuntu Linux kernel up to the latest version. When you have done so, simply type in uname -r prior to working on any other commands that will follow. When you are done with this, your next step would be to turn on and run on your computer the any-any patch update. After doing so, you can then go to your prompt box and do the usually sudo commands, but this time using sudo that are any-any update specific. Keep in mind that for users who have a sixty four bit system, there are around three or four additional commands you need to run in sudo before any changes take effect.
