VMware Workstation 6.0.4 running on openSUSE 11.0... Here is the goodness.

Well after some googling and a little hacking myself i was able to come up with a proceedure for all the openSUSE members on how to get VMware Workstation 6.0.4 running on openSUSE 11.0.

Follow the Outline below step by step and you will be up and running in no time.
1. Download the latest VMWare Workstation 6.0.4 from here ( The rpm version of course )
2. Install VMware Workstation 6.0.4 rpm.
3. Download this patch for vmware-vmblock from here
4. Extract it with the command # tar xzvf vmware-vmblock-patch.tgz
5. Change your directory to vmware-vmblock-patch with the command # cd vmware-vmblock-patch
6. execute with the command # ./
7. Now you can run ( of course make sure you have your kernel-source, gcc, make and the like installed )

supportconfig YaST module coming...

Its been awhile since i last posted. I have been on Travel for Novell and have not had much time to make any posts.. but hopefully this will redeem my lacking from the past weeks.

I have been Working on creating a YaST module for supportconfig.

If you are unsure about what supportconfig is then you can read about it here
Also if you want to install it and check it out for yourself go here, and of course you can search for it on the openSUSE software search here

Here are the screenshots of my mockup as of today.

If anyone is interested at all in what i am doing with this please let me know.
Also if you have other ideas they are always welcome.
