OK, this one is easy, but for the sake of the archives, here it goes:
$ vmware-vdiskmanager -t 2 -r winxp.vmdk winxp-static.vmdk SSLLoadSharedLibrary: Failed to load library libssl.so.0.9.8:\ /opt/vmware-server/bin/libdir/lib/libssl.so.0.9.8/libssl.so.0.9.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Core dump limit is 1048576 KB. Core dumped.Of course, strace is here to help:
$ strace vmware-vdiskmanager [...] [...] open("/opt/vmware-server/bin/libssl.so.0.9.8", O_RDONLY) \ = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory) open("/opt/vmware-server/bin/libdir/lib/libssl.so.0.9.8/libssl.so.0.9.8", \ O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)Somehow the VMWare installer must've messed up the directory structure: what is
bin/libdir/libsupposed to mean? A symlink helps:
$ ln -s /opt/vmware-server/lib/vmware /opt/vmware-server/bin/libdirOh, and for the initial command: disk performance was kinda sucky and I tried to convert the 2GB filefragments into one big 6GB
.vmdk, let's see if this helps....
