I am installing Vmware 2 on Fedora 9 and I am a little stuck. After I downloaded VMware and go to the directory in my terminal, I have to Unpack the tar files. This is the command I put in:

tar xvfz VMware-server-*.tar.gz
cd vmware-server-distrib
./vmware-install.pl


At the end of the unpacking I get this:

/usr/bin/perl: symbol lookup error: /usr/bin/perl: undefined symbol: PL_use_safe_putenv

I go back and reinstall the prerequisites for VMware and I get this message at the end:


--> Missing Dependency: perl = 4:5.10.0-20.fc9 is needed by package 4:perl-libs-5.10.0-20.fc9.i386 (installed)

Then I try to run ./vmware-install.pl and come up wit the same error message as before. I can not figure out how to pass this can anyone help me please.

Does anyone know what command I need to put in to get these Missing Dependendies for Perl:

perl = 4:5.10.0-20.fc9 is needed by package 1:perl-Pod-Escapes-1.04-20.fc9.i386
perl = 4:5.10.0-20.fc9 is needed by package 4:perl-libs-5.10.0-20.fc9.i386
perl = 4:5.10.0-20.fc9 is needed by package 1:perl-Module-Pluggable-3.60-20.fc9.i386

I cannot finish my updates until they are in.

Is the main perl package installed?

If you want to install a specific version of a package just use the full name:

yum install perl-4:5.10.0-20.fc9

But I think you've got other problems, the error message "installed has depsolving problems" suggests it's having trouble figuring out dependencies. Try doing:

yum clean
yum update

..just be aware this will update all packages, if you haven't updated in a while it could be a big download. Alternatively you could just try updating yum:

yum update yum

I tried it they way you said and it didnt work. The same message can up. I even tried to install them individually. Maybe it's something I didn't do when I installed Fedora
