Both Fedora and CentOS (5.x) workstations were giving me errors when trying to run the VMWare Server Console. Unfortunetely I didn't write them down, but I think it was something like...
/usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware: /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libpng12.so.0/libpng12.so.0: no version information available (required by /usr/lib32/libcairo.so.2)
I fixed this by
mv libpng12.so.0 /libpng12.so.0.bak
ln -s /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0 ./
this fixed that error but then I got this error
Accessibility App Error IDL:Bonobo/GeneralError:1.0
This was fixed by setting the correct ownership/permission of the vmware relaited files in my home directory.
chown -R kkusanto:users .vmware/
I think the last error was caused because I used sudo to configure the vmware server console. I hope this helps someone out.
