 +====== Installing VMWare Server Console Under Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron ======
  
 +I got this information from http://​www.ntbrad.com/​wordpress/?​p=341,​ but it had some problems. ​ No comments were allowed on that page, so I decided to drop the details here.
 +
 +From a terminal, run the following:
 +
 +  sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -a` gcc-3.4-base xserver-xorg libxt6 libxrender1 libxtst6 libxi6 libdb2 openssl libssl-dev mc htop ssh unzip
 +
 +Note: I'm not sure how much of this is needed. ​ I either had each of these installed already, or they didn't exist. ​ So, none of them installed on my machine.
 +
 +  cd <path to download>​
 +  tar -xf VM (hit TAB)
 +  cd vm (hit TAB)
 +  sudo ./​vmware-install.pl
 +
 +Now that the program is intalled, it won't find a couple libraries, so here are the fixes for Hardy.
 +
 +  sudo cp /​lib/​libgcc_s.so.1 /​usr/​lib/​vmware-server-console/​lib/​libgcc_s.so.1/​
 +  sudo cp /​usr/​lib/​libpng12.so.0 /​usr/​lib/​vmware-server-console/​lib/​libpng12.so.0/​
