VMware server from Ubuntu official repositories

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 Third-Party Software:

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][1] in Ubuntu, which is actually referenced from the [page about Installtion VMware Server in Ubuntu][2] [1]: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu#head-b75a0c6c7e357640731529980d3f3ad3614b9a76 [2]: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VMware/Server
