create iso:

mkisofs -o image.iso -x /home/joeuser/excluded/ -J -R -A -V -v /home/isoimage/

mount iso:

mount -o loop -t iso9660 file.iso /mnt/test

vmware workstation 6 on gentoo

after installation:

gpasswd -a USERNAME vmware

to run vmware:

VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_GTK=yes /opt/vmware/workstation/bin/vmware

when I’ve tried to power on a virtual machine, I’ve got this error:

Unable to change virtual machine power state: Failed to connect to peer process

solution for me was:

chmod o+x /opt/vmware/workstation/lib/bin/vmware-vmx
