For an Operating Systems Architecture course at University, we are required to use VMware Player 3.1.4 for class assignments. I currently run 64-bit Ubuntu 11.04, and have recently formatted with a vanilla install of 64-bit 11.04; which still had the following outcome.
I start the install off by cd'ing to the directory where the VMware bundle resides and running this installation command:
sudo sh ./VMware-Player-3.1.4-385536.x86_64.bundle
Unfortunately, after half of a second of running the install script, I encounter this error:
./VMware-Player-3.1.4-385536.x86_64.bundle: line 302: /tmp/vmis.k6Yk9O/install/vmware-installer/vmware-installer: Permission denied
At which the extracted installer is executed at line 302 with the following options:
302 "$installer" --set-setting vmware-installer libconf "$libconf" \ 303 --install-component "$source"/vmware-installer \ 304 --install-bundle "$bundle" "$@"
Also, an md5sum called on the bundle returns the exact sum as mentioned on the download page.
At this point, I've used
sudo -i to log in as root which still throws a permission denied error.
Searching Google and Stackoverflow provided only one other case with no answers (I upvoted); so I decided to post to askubuntu wondering if somebody has had the same issue or has a fix under 11.04?
