Today I hit my first problem when creating a new JeOS virtual appliance based on Ubuntu. After I mount and extract the VMWare tools; I tried to run the ./vmware-install.pl script and got the warning below.
/tmp/vmware-tools-distrib/vmware-config.pl The following VMware kernel modules have been found on your system that were not installed by the VMware Installer. Please remove them then run this installer again. vmnet vmhgfs vmblock vmmon Execution aborted.
I did not install any VMWare tools before, but somehow these VMWare modules were included in the ubuntu-7.10-jeos-i386.iso file. Go to following directory and remove the mentioned directories.
cd /lib/modules/2.6.22-14-virtual/ubuntu ls sudo rm -r vmnet/ sudo rm -r vmhgfs sudo rm -r vmblock sudo rm -r vmmon
That’s all. Rerun the install script.
