Subject: GNAP & vmware-server-console

Hi,

I have created gnap based cd with X and some other packages, but the main goal 
was to get vmware-server-console aplication working. 

The problem is that I the app cannot find right libraries, and if it gets 
them, complains about /tmp not writable. During last 4 days I did a few 
things to get it work and still without results.

I can list libraries with ldd, so I simply put those libs to /lib, remastered 
and restarted. Because of those libs X haven't started, so I thought the 
solution would be chrooting in such way, where all directories but /lib is 
the same as in gnap, and lib is /usr/local/lib where libraries for 
vmware-server-console resides.

So I did like I thought, but then I got vmware-server-console error about /tmp 
dir. I've consider a bug in the app, but maybe I did some obvious mistake 
which you (all) could clarify to me. And one another thing: to make things 
worse, vmware-server-console uses some script changing LD_LIBRARY_PATH for 
their sake, so I'm not sure if it would help.

I wanted also to start the app using: ld-uClibc.so.0 --library-path 
vmware-server-console, but... Standalone execution is not supported yet.

This is my post and reply on vmtn, with piece of strace and other information:

BTW: Xorg fails to compile on gnap when /usr/X11R6 is a directory. Instead I 
needed create symlink to ../usr and create two other dirs: /usr/include/GL 
and /usr/include/X11.

I would really appreciate any advice, thanks.
Janusz
