Unable to get the last modification timestamp...

Another chapter in the Wonderful World of Linux...

So, I reloaded my new server with a fresh copy of XUbuntu 9.04, as I had been playing around with the initial "test" install and wanted to be sure I had a clean slate to use as my server host. I then downloaded and installed WebMin 1.470 to use to help me setup my 1TB RAID 1 Array.

I want to pause here a moment and thank the creators of this tool! WebMin is a terrific Web-browser-based GUI to help you configure TONS of things in a Linux OS. I highly recommend it for Linux noobs like myself! It made setting up my RAID array virtually painless. No worrying about what order to type in cryptic commands, just click and fill in the options. Two thumbs up!

Ok, so as I was saying...

I then installed VMWARE Server 2.01 64-bit. So far so good.

(Another shout-out goes to VMWARE for offering this terrific product for free... BIG kudos.)

Ok, I then wanted to install the VMWARE Converter, so that I could convert some of my Microsoft VirtualPC images to VMWARE images. I did this all on the initial "test" install and had no problems, however when I installed the converter this time, I got the following error:

Installing the VMware VmPerl Scripting API.

The installation of the VMware VmPerl Scripting API succeeded.

Generating SSL Server Certificate

Unable to get the last modification timestamp of the destination file 
/etc/vmware/ssl/rui.key.

Execution aborted.

Suck. After doing some searching, I found that I was missing the 32-bit libraries. In my initial install I must have inadvertently installed something that installed them for me. In this case, I needed to install them myself using the following command:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

After installing these libraries, I re-ran the VMWARE Converter install and had better luck.

I created (touch) the following files /etc/vmware-converter/ssl/rui.key

and /etc/vmware-converter/ssl/rui.crt and was able to correct this issue (running fedora 64-bit on on Intel)
