Fedora 9 vs. VMware-server 1.0.8

VMware-server 1.0.8 seems to barf on the GTK+ theme files shipped with Fedora 9. I'm using Clearlooks. You can force VMware-server to use the system GTK+ libraries:

export VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_GTK=no
vmware &

On my F9 x86_64 install, I needed to install a few i386 packages first, before VMware start. VMware-server is an i386 program, so you need these i386 packages to be installed for it to be able to use the system GTK+ libraries:

yum -y install glib2.i386 gtk2.i386
