Distribution Upgrade 7.10 -> 8.04

As with the upgrade from 7.04 to 7.10:
  1. sudo do-distribution-upgrade
  2. keep the configuration files
  3. accept deletion of outdated files
  4. reboot
For a complete list of prerequisites visit my old article here.

There is an error in Webmin 1.410. It shows Apache2 server as being stopped. This is not the case as one can verify with ps afx | grep apache2. I will post a fix as soon as I found one.

Configuring VMware Server

In Kernel 2.6.23, a change was introduced that breaks vmware-server (a complete explanation can be found here):

Another solution is to get the vmware-any-any-patch116.tar.gz. I unpacked the tar and copied vmmon.tar and vmnet.tar into /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source.

vmware-config.pl configured the server (ignore the warnings, the server starts fine), and ran vmware-config-mui.pl.

Server is now up and running.
