On the website:
They only seem to offer the file:
So the ebuild would need to adapted to change the MY_P variable to:
... except if I missed a possibility to still download the version without "-Full" in its name?
VMware Workstation for Linux 32-bit without VMware Tools is still available for download. I can't give you URL, because you need to register and login into vmware website.
Hmm. But it must be hidden / not easy to find, no?
Because if I login using the url:
Then you get only the FULL versions 32bit and 64bit and I don't see any possibility to get to the non-full version.
I don't find this very user friendly.
But whatever, I create my own ebuild that uses the full version :/
Just to precise why I said: "I don't find this very user friendly" and why I am disappointed here:
The ebuild tells the user:
* Please download VMware-Workstation-7.1.4-385536.x86_64.bundle
* from http://www.vmware.com/products/workstation/
That is exactly what I did. And on this URL everyone will click on "Try for free" button... which brings you exactly to this page:
On which I was not able to find the non-Full version.
Thats why I came to the conslusion:
A little more guidance or an ebuild that works with the [easy to find] -Full version would be nice.
I have same problem
I never got an answer to my original request for an explanation /how/ to get the binary and/or why there can't be more guidance.
Now there is another person having the same problem --> hence I see this issue as confirmed.
And as needs-info in form of an answer/discussion about my comment-3.
