We just deployed an Ubuntu server Dual Processor AMD X2 with 16GB of RAM
VMware-server shows up in synaptic and is quick to install.
The VMs we host is a mix of 32bit and 64bit Windows and Linux.

The only problem we run into is that the Screen of the application does not
properly appear on a Remote VMware Server Console regardless of whether the
remote is Windows or Linux. The support entries on vmware.com will indicate
permissions on the .vmx files but we could not find a solution. We did
notice on Ubuntu it reports an Xauth error. I do not understand that side
well enough to know where to look and have not had time to delve.

Hello all,

I'm looking at trying a beefier setup for configuring a VMWare-server ubuntu
system.  I am looking at using more than 4 gig of memory, which I'm assuming
would mean the 64 bit version of Ubuntu.

I'm familiar with configuring VMWare installs on Ubuntu from the repos, so
that's the method I was going to use to install it this time.

I've never used the 64 bit version of Ubuntu, so what problems would I have
to look out for?  Will VMWare work on the 64 bit version and use more than 4
gig of memory, or is VMWare on 64 bit ubuntu treated like a
32 bit application and will be limited in memory use?

Some googling indicated that some people had problems with clock skewing
using 64 bit AMD processors...? Anyone experience this?

Any other notes or ideas on this?
