Hello,

I installed VMWare Workstation 6 from downloaded tar. Installed virtual machine (WinXP). No problems (that I could tell). Everything compiled and given OK by installation script.

Upon reboot there were these messages:
Code:

*
*WARNING:  /etc/init.d/K08vmware missing; skipping
*
*
*
INIT: Entering runlevel:  3
* WARNING: /etc/init.d/K08vmware missing; skipping...
* WARNING: /etc/init.d/S90vmware missing; skipping...
* WARNING: /etc/init.d/K08vmware missing; skipping...


When I power on the XP virtual machine I get

Code:

Error Could not open /dev/vmmon: No such file or directory. Please make sure that the kernel module 'vmmon' is loaded.
Error Failed to initialize monitor device.
Error Unable to change virtual machine power state: Cannot find a valid peer process to connect to.


I have spent a lot of effort getting here, but now I am stuck. I added the modules vmnet.o, vmblock.o, and vmmon.o to: /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6. However, upon reboot, they failed to autoload. I also created a directory: /dev/vmmon.
Same errors persist.
Should I throw the vmmon.o module into the /dev/vmmon directory? I am "grasping at straws" here since I am beginner.

Please advise,
thanks!

Moved from Desktop Environments to Duplicate Threads, as it is a copy of topic "VMWare Workstation failing after reboot".

One topic per problem, please.
