Installing VMware Player 3.1.1 on Ubuntu 10.04...


Screenshots...



1) Install build-essential and linux-headers (for my case I skip this step because I had these two packages installed before)
    $ sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
2) Change the installer mode
    $ chmod +x ./VMware-Player-3.1.1-282343.x86_64.bundle
3) Execute the installer
    $ gksudo bash ./VMware-Player-3.1.1-282343.x86_64.bundle
When popup appear, click Install.

  1. How is VMware Player compared to VirtualBox? Much faster? Any complications?

  2. I can't really tell the different in terms of performance. Here's a good article about the features comparison between the two.

    Quick note:
    VMWare Player support Windows Aero
    VirtualBox support snapshot

  3. Just found out some info regarding snapshot:

    "VMware Player only supports one snapshot per VM. However, if you need multiple snapshots, you can consider buying VMware workstation version."
