            [-- <X toolkit options>]


     Copyright (C) 1998-2002 VMware, Inc.


     The vmware command starts an Intel X86-based virtual machine.  Depending
     upon your hardware configuration, you can run a number of virtual
     machines simultaneously.

     This page describes options for starting virtual machines from the com­
     mand line using vmware.  For more information, see the in-product Help
     and the VMware Web site at http://www.vmware.com/support.

     A VMware virtual machine provides an execution environment for full,
     unmodified operating systems running on an x86-based computer.  The host
     operating system runs on the real hardware. A guest operating system runs
     inside a virtual machine.  You may install one of several different guest
     operating systems in each of your virtual machines, and each operating
     system is secure and isolated from the host machine's operating system as
     well as from the other guest operating systems on the host.

     You can specify a virtual machine's configuration by setting parameters
     in a configuration file using the syntax name=value.  Parameters are set
     one-per-line.  Lines that begin with a number sign (#) are comments and
     are ignored.  To use a configuration file, specify it on the vmware com­
     mand line.

     You can also change configuration variables on the command line using the
     -s option with the following syntax:


     After a double-dash separator (--), X toolkit options may be passed as
     arguments, although some of them (in particular size and title) are


     -s name=value
           Set the configuration variable name to value, overriding other def­
           initions of name.

     -x    Power-on the virtual machine on startup.  Equivalent to pressing
           the power-on button after the program starts.  Requires that you
           specify a configuration file on the command line.

     -X    Power-on and switch to full screen.  Same as -x, but switch to full
           screen mode after powering on.  Requires that you specify a config­
           uration file on the command line.

     -q    Attempt to exit the virtual machine after powering off.  This is
           particularly useful when the guest operating system is capable of

     ~/.vmware/license      User license.
     /usr/lib/vmware        Library directory, possibly shared by several
     diskfile.WRITELOCK     Temporary lock files for diskfile.
     diskfile.REDO          Redo log for diskfile, created when diskfile is
                            accessed in undoable mode.


     Most of the documentation for VMware products is available in the user's
     manual for that product, through Help (run vmware and click the Help but­
     ton) and at http://www.vmware.com/support.
