VMware server from Ubuntu official repositories08 May 2007
I think its kinda hidden. You might have wondered why vmware-server kernel modules was available from the repositories but no vmware-server? The answer is: It is available!
Just like Real Player, Opera and other commercial software you can install VMware-server from the following repository, which you add to
System -> Administration -> Software Sources and
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu feisty-commercial main
After that you run:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install vmware-server
A colleague pointed me a page about adding [Adding Canonical Commercial Repositories] in Ubuntu, which is actually referenced from the [page about Installtion VMware Server in Ubuntu] : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu#head-b75a0c6c7e357640731529980d3f3ad3614b9a76 : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VMware/Server
