when entering the input:
sudo /usr/bin/vmplayer &
I receive the following error in my terminal's verbose output:
I/O warning: failed to load external entity "/etc/VMware/hostd/proxy.xml"
So my first question may seem pretty stupid but that's just my style now days, why is this file referred to as an "external" entity by my operating system's I/O?
And secondly, how do I determine how to format an xml file appropriately on a case by case basis?
