Installing VMware server means that you need to get your hands dirty in the command line, but it’s not too bad. No need to worry about permissions, dependencies, or kernel compiling.

That being said, VMware server doesn’t want to install without problems on Feisty. The easiest solution (and one that worked for me) is to incorporate the 1.0.8 patch. handband2 nicely outlines the steps in his post. Solution. But, keep in mind that it’s ok for the install to abort. That’s when you apply the patch and the install is restarted. From there on, it’s just as normal.
