The new version of my preferred virtual machine environment is out, I’m using it, but the problem with audio device/ALSA is still present.

The new web interface (new??? I remember the “same” interface with the old GSX…) adds some cool features, but the way to fix the ALSA problem is the same of the previous version…

[source: js] sudo -i
aptitude install alsa-oss
cd /usr/lib/vmware/bin
mv vmware-vmx vmware-vmx.real
echo ‘#!/bin/bash’ > vmware-vmx
echo ‘ exec /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-vmx.real “$@”‘ >> vmware-vmx
chmod +x vmware-vmx
chmod +s /usr/lib/*
