Please help. Unable to get started on cs50 Problem Set

32 bit Ubuntu 14.04, 2.66 GHz, memory-2 GB, disk-500 GB VMware player 6.0.3

* Error while installation of appliance50-19-vmware.ova

The import failed because man did not pass OVF specification conformance or virtual hardware compliance checks.

Click Retry to relax OVF specification and virtual hardware compliance checks and try the import again, or click Cancel to cancel the import. If you retry the import, you might not be able to use the virtual machine in VMware Player.

Please help. Unable to get started on cs50 Problem Set

  • I have everything same configuration except 3.00 GHz. And I would simply advice you to switch to virtualbox because vmware was problematic for me too, however virtualbox is running fine.

I have everything same configuration except 3.00 GHz. And I would simply advice you to switch to virtualbox because vmware was problematic for me too, however virtualbox is running fine.

Moreover, this page says :

If you have a PC running Linux, we recommend that you install: VirtualBox

So its better to switch to Virtualbox than spending time to find solutions to the problems faced on vmware.
