I have vmware palyer 4.0.3 installed on ubuntu 12.04 with kernel 3.3.6.
For some reasons the network doesn't work on it ( maybe because of the kernel) I tried to uninstall the vmware player using wmware-installer -u vmware-player but it failed.
This is what I get in the dialog:
The vmware installer could not shut down all running virtual machines. if you have ACE VMs open, please shut them down or suspend them now and press 'Retry' to continue.
I don't have any vm running and I tried to use serive command to stop but it failed again with this error:
bamdad@laptop:~/Software/patch$ sudo service vmware stop Stopping VMware services: VMware Authentication Daemon done /etc/init.d/vmware: line 351: [: 16519574018620477093: integer expression expected VM communication interface socket family failed Virtual machine communication interface failed Virtual machine monitor failed Blocking file system done ERROR: Module vmnet is in use by [permanent]
I searched for custom patches and found nothing. I have no idea what else I can do to uninstall this vmware and install another one.
