Or little computing tricks and hacks
These are straight forward instructions for installing VMware Play in Ubuntu to run virtual machines. This is necessary to run a virtual OpenERP server.
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
dpkg -s packagename or dpkg-query -l packagename
$ chmod +x VMware-Player-*.bundle
$ sudo ./VMware-Player-*.bundle
However, after running the server and virtual machine once, the machine stopped…
If I pressed install, it would just crashed. Given that I couldn’t even run it, I decided to uninstall and reinstall it. And that seemed to have done the trick.
vmware-installer -u vmware-player
