HI guys,

Im going to make a cry for help. I just cannot get VMware player working on kali so I can run some labs

I have looked deep online but the suggestions are just not working for me or im not really comprehending them. I was hoping someone here might have been thru this and would be able to offer some advise.

Below is my log file. Its late and I need sleep so my apologies in advance and replys will follow. Im really struggling to understand whats actually going on here :|

Sounds like you need to pick a "mere mortals" Linux and install vmware on that. Create 2 VMs, install Kali on both and then use the one to attack the other.

Did you apt-get vmware or install it from vmware? I run player a few times a week in kali with no issues. I did find that when kali updates the kernel, player can't upgrade it's kernel extensions. It doesn't know what kali linux is, so you just have to reinstall player over and it works after that.

Hi Barry, cant recall now, however I am now up and running as per Coopers suggested method. I know metasploitable is flawed by design but holy ... i did not think it would be so easy just starting off with rlogin and WTF is up with NFS that is dangerous :) im going to have to research how to secure that. Seems far far far too easy. I think I will setup a stock install of ubuntu on a box and see if I have as much luck.

I am soo bitten by the bug right now.
