Running VMWare on AMD 64 running Feisty Fawn

08 / Apr / 2008 by Deepak 1 comments

If you are running Feisty Fawn on AMD 64 machine and try to open a VMWare image, you will most-likely get this error message

“Error while powering on: Failed to connect to peer process.”

The solution to this problem is to install the following the 32-bit libraries required by Ubuntu to recognize the 32-bit operating system.

Use the following command to install the required libraries.

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

After installing these libraries, I was able to open the virtual machine without any problems on my Ubuntu Feisty Fawn AMD 64 machine.

Hope this helps somebody.
