Instalar VMPlayer 1.0.3 en Debian Sarge / Etch

Desgraciadamente para nosotros linuxeros, hay ciertas cosas que no podemos hacer sin güindous. Por ejemplo, páginas que están diseñadas para IE y se niegan a trabajar en nuestros Firefox, Konqueror, etc. Para solucionar éste tema tenemos VMPlayer. Nos permite ejecutar una imágen virtual con un güindous instalado sin tener que salir de Linux. Aquí explicaré la forma de instalar éste programa.

1. Descargar VMPlayer del siguiente enlace:

http://www.vmware.com/download/player/download.html

Nos descargamos la versión "for linux .tar".

2. Una vez descargado, entramos en una consola y descomprimimos:
$ tar xfz VMware-player-1.0.3-34682.tar.gz

Nos creará el directorio "vmware-player-distrib"

3. Nos logueamos como usuario root e instalamos las fuentes del kernel. Si ya las tenemos instaladas sáltate éste paso:

$ su -
passwd:

SARGE: # aptitude install kernel-headers-$(uname -r)
ETCH: # aptitude install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

4. Accedemos al directorio donde descomprimios VMPlayer y ejecutamos la instalación:

# cd ~nombre_usuario/vmware-player-distrib
# ./vmware-install.pl

Trying to find a suitable vmmon module for your running kernel.

None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Player is suitable for your
running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes] ENTER

Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/lib/modules/2.6.17-2-686/build/include] ENTER

Do you want networking for your virtual machines? (yes/no/help) [yes] ENTER

Configuring a bridged network for vmnet0.

The following bridged networks have been defined:

. vmnet0 is bridged to eth0

All your ethernet interfaces are already bridged.

Do you want to be able to use NAT networking in your virtual machines? (yes/no)
[yes] ENTER

5. Si todo ha ido bien, en nuestro menú KDE / Sistema, tendremos nuestro enlace a VMware Player.

6. Ahora nos falta la imágen sobre la cual instalar güindous. Nos vamos a éste enlace y creamos nuestra imágen.

http://www.easyvmx.com/easyvmx.shtml

Virtual Machine Name: windows
Select GuestOS: Windows XP Professional Edition
Memory Size: 512 (depende de la cantidad que tengas libre en tu equipo)
# of CPUs: 1

Ethernet0: x Bridged Intel Pro 1000
Floppy Disk Drive: x Auto detect
CDROM1: x Auto detect
Disk #1: x Disk Size 20GB x SCSI (Creo q más q suficiente, aunque tranándose de güindows, nunca se sabe)

El sonido lo dejamos tal cual lo proponen.
Picamos en "Create Virtual Machine" y nos aparecerá en otra página nuestro archivo "windows.zip" listo para descargar. Lo descargamos a nuestro escritorio.

7. Descomprimimos la imágen:
$ cd
$ mv Desktop/windows.zip .
$ unzip -X windows.zip

Nos creará el directorio "/home/nombre_usuario/windows", y dentro contiene nuestra imágen sobre la que instalar güindows.

Sólo queda abrir la imágen con el VMPlayer y a instalar.

Saludos y Suerte.
