Hi

Have a sligt issue here with me new F9 64 bit install. I have installed vmware server 1.05 and the console and both installed fine. Had to apply some patches to the vmware drivers and also had to install 32 bit libraries as they are not installed by default in 64 bit fedora anymore.

However, when I try to start the vmware-server-console I get this error:

Locking assertion failure. Backtrace:
#0 /usr/lib/libxcb-xlib.so.0 [0x361767]
#1 /usr/lib/libxcb-xlib.so.0(xcb_xlib_unlock+0x31) [0x361831]
#2 /usr/lib/libX11.so.6(_XReply+0x244) [0x41df64]
#3 /usr/lib/vmware-server-console/lib/libXrender.so.1/libXrender.so.1(XRenderQueryFormats+0x109) [0x20b969]
#4 /usr/lib/vmware-server-console/lib/libXrender.so.1/libXrender.so.1(XRenderFindFormat+0x4c) [0x20bf4c]
#5 /usr/lib/vmware-server-console/lib/libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0/libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0 [0x5ad180]

Lots of same type messages follow this one. I am assuming I am lacking some 32 libs somewhere - could anyone here point me in the right direction?

I'm having exactly the same problem.. trying to install a patched version of VMware server 1.0.4 on 64-bit Fedora 9... installed all of the necessary 32-bit libraries (libXdmcp, libXau, libxcb, libX11, libXext, libXtst, libXt, libICE, libSM, libXrender, libz, libXi)... same error.

Thank you very much for posting all the dependencies!
Yum couldn't find libz though, installing libzip.i386 did the job though. Still getting some strange error when trying to run vmware-server-console:

vmware-server-console: xcb_lock.c:77: _XGetXCBBuffer: Assertion `((int) ((xcb_req) - (dpy->request)) >= 0)' failed.

Try installing zlib instead of libz.

After finding another thread on a different site (http://communities.vmware.com/message/949974), I was able to get VMware server running this morning...

First, I needed to patch the server with the vmware-any-any-update117 patch.

Then I also needed to install gtk-nodoka-engine.i386 package.

Seems to be working now.

It worked perfectly! Thank you very much for the info!
