Ubuntu 8.10 ( Intrepid Ibex ) and VMware Workstation

Just tried to install VMware Workstation 6.5 ( VMware-Workstation-6.5.0-110068 to be precise ) onto my freshly squeezed installed Ubuntu 8.10 machine, and hit a nasty surprise. In essence, the script that runs when you first run VMware ( used to be called ) failed to run with a "File not found" error. I did a quick Google, and found this known Ubuntu bug.

Once done, alle es goede.
