VMware will lockup when trying to click the browse button – Solution

VMware will lockup when trying to click the browse button on SLES10 SP1. Very frustrating bug but fortunately there is workaround:

  1. Open a terminal and su to root.
    su
  2. Change to the libpng12.so.0 directory.
    cd /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libpng12.so.0
  3. Rename the libpng12.so.0 file within that directory.
    mv libpng12.so.0 libpng12.so.0.old
  4. Create a new soft link for this file.
    ln -sf /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0 libpng12.so.0
  5. Now change the the libgcc_s.so.1 directory.
    cd /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libgcc_s.so.1
  6. Rename the libgcc_s.so.1 file within that directory.
    mv libgcc_s.so.1 libgcc_s.so.1.old
  7. Create a new soft link for this file.
    ln -sf /lib/libgcc_s.so.1
  8. Restart VMware and you should now be able to use the browse option.
