I am newish to Linux i am getting into it and it is a very good OS and has allot more to offer than Microsoft Windows has. As you may all agree they both have there advantages and there disadvantages.
So what i am trying to do is getting VMware player to work on OpenSUSE Linux 10.2 (KDE) so i can get into Windows inside Linux, but i have a problem.
I have downloaded VMware player and saved it to the local machine. The package is .RPM format. I right clicked the package> actions > Install with YaST. It asks me for the root password what i put in. The it stalls the package copying files etc. I can't seem to find the application on the menus so i did i search still can't find it. so i went into software management via YaST control panel. I can see the application there but it has a little padlock next to it. I then right clicked it will let me keep, delete & protect. (Update is grayed out).
What am i doing wrong please?
