    Segmentation Error while Installing Ubuntu LTS on Vmware

    For testing purpose I tried installing Ubuntu LTC on Vmware ESXi 4.1. But in return faced segmentation error and it did not worked. I am using an installation cd for the same to run the setup. What can be reason behind this.

    Segmentation error can be cause due to your ram. It means either the memory is not able to execute the program functions properly. The same can also be related to your processor. So better have a look on the hardware requirement and then check back.

    If you are trying to configure nested vms then you might have to check back your hardware requirement. You must have better processors and ram to initiate the process. I think your hardware does not support the same. You can also try with another disc or iso file of Ubuntu. Go for an older version and then try back. A older version can surely work on the same. VMware ESXi is an new generation hyper-visor architecture. The main objective behind the same it to provide better and improved hyper-visor manager where you can run multiple configuration. You can inside a vmware manage a vmware host. So that gives your task to this system. Anyhow the software yet used at many place does not give much error. Whatever error appears is only because of hardware issue. So you must proper hardware support with virtualization support. Run some updates and try an older version on your system. That might surely help. Just run the same for testing purpose and then check back.

    It looks like software flaw. Re-install all stuff back again and check the settings are enabled or not. Then try a fresh setup again. This time it should work.

    Sometime the error is also related to the partitioning format you are using. Try to run a manual partition setup. Do not go for automatic settings and then check back. This time it will work. The error was common on Linux host where the partitioning and other setup where carried on automatic mode. When you are running the setup for the partition support choose manual method. Specify proper manual partitioning settings and then check back. Again it is also an better advice to go for an older version if new is giving you error on setup. In my case I had not yet tired running the setup of Vmware on my system. But I had already success in using the same with different operating system. You had also not provide more information your system requirements. That can give more clear idea about the same. Have a look on some setup video that can help you to understand the setup. There are certain limitations related to the operating system setup. You must go through the compatibility list once and then check back.

    Follow the below guest os installation guide. Esxi server provides you an option by which you can configure many guest operating system. Have a look on the same. Run the most compatible operating system on the outer layer and then run Ubuntu on Guest OS.

    It is better to remove all once and then to install it back again. It will not be worth to check the same back again and again. Change the Linux version also. Try some older one.

    It will bet better you must have a look on the compatibility version of vmware. It is giving the error which can be related to the hardware incompatibility. The official website of vmware has many sources of information on the same where you can read the guide for version compatibility. Also there are very less references on the same. You cannot find much on ubuntu setup on Esxi. If you are trying to install the same over the outlayer then surely the issue is related with the hardware compatibility. But if this is due to host configuration then the crash can be due to misconfiguration. There is a guide called vSphere Compatibility Matrix's which gives information on the cross compatibility of this software. Also there are hardware configuration matrix which gives information on the most compatible hardware. Check for the same.

    Why don't you try some other type of operating system instead of Ubuntu. It is possible that due to incompatibility you are facing the issue. Try some other operating system and if you get the same error then it is an hardware issue.
