vmware builds and installs correctly BUT vmware-wizard looks for tcl 8.0 and
gentoo installs tcl 8.3.3 so vmware-wizard errors with
static@LNX static $ /opt/vmware/bin/vmware-wizard
Application initialization failed: Can't find a usable init.tcl in the following
/opt/lib/tcl8.0 /opt/vmware/library /opt/library /opt/tcl8.0/library
This probably means that Tcl wasn't installed properly.
I have dev-lang/tcl-8.3.3 installed and vmware-wizard works for me. Also as best
as I can tell vmware-wizard doens't use tcl at all:
# ldd /opt/vmware/bin/vmware-wizard
libX11.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x4002d000)
libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x400f5000)
libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x400f8000)
libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x4011a000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)
I also had this problem. Maybe try doing a fresh install and see what happens?
Hrm, I think I was using the newest vmware when I wrote comment 1. I'll go back
a version and check it out.
Ok, I'll admit that wmare-wizard use tcl. If you run `strings vmware-wizard`
you'll see some tcl stuff. I'll fix the relevant DEPEND lines.
That said, I have the problem of "it works for me" which makes it real hard to
fix your problem, any chance you can be descriptive about when you ran
vmware-wizard? Was it before you ran vmware-config? Were the kernel modules
loaded? Anything else that may be relevent?
I ran vmware config allready and the modules were all loaded the thing is is
that vmware-config is lookin for tcl 8.0 and gentoo has 8.3.3 "I think thats the
problem" vmware itself runs fine just the wizard does not because of the tcl issue
also if you talk on op my nick is [static] if you want to talk more about it
After talking to Danny on IRC and banging my head on the desk alot Danny said
the problem went away after he upgraded to VMware 3.1 . So I'm going hold off on
worrying anymore about this until after the 3.1 package is made live and ppl
have problems with it. See bug #1686 if you can't wait for the final 3.1 ebuild.
Sorry, I need sleep, I got the Bug depends on and bug blocks confused.
