Install VMWare Workstation 5 on Fedora Core 4



Coming soon...I'll put in my text later this evening.

Ok this is what you'll need.

o VMware 5.0 workstation
o vmware-any-any-update93.tar.gz
o kernel-source
o gcc
o gcc-c++
o make

Do a simple rpm -qa kernel* gcc* make to get the versions info. If you don't have them them YUM them, If you know what I mean :-). I had a gcc 4.0.1 and was getting complaints from the vmware-config.pl script. Anyways...

Versions checked, All OK. Then do the following...

o make cloneconfig; make prepare-all
o rpm -ivh VMware-workstation-5.0.0-13124.i386.rpm or untar the gzip version, your call.
o tar -xzf vmware-any-any-update93.tar.gz
o Run the runme.pl perl script ./runme.pl
o The above will start the vmware-config.pl and you should countinue installing without problems.

Good Luck!

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them.
