    Question Vmware server install error

    Having tried to install Vmware server 1.0.5 on kubuntu i had an error flash up halfway threw the install stopping it from completing so today i went back to try install it again and I'm now being told that vmware is already installed, how would i track down and uninstall this partial install

    cheers

    are you using the ubuntu vmware deb packages or the tarball+install script downloaded from the vmware site?

    The install script should offer to remove/upgrade the prior installation.
