If you have problems performing power operations on a selected virtual machine, your Linux distribution might be missing libraries.

You cannot power on a virtual machine on your ESX host.

Libraries are missing in your Linux distribution.

To troubleshoot the issue, you must install the missing libraries.


Make sure that you have a dependency checker, such as ldd against libmks.so, viewer, and remotemks binaries.


Use the following commands to determine the missing libraries.

cd ~/.mozilla/plugins
ldd ./libmks.so | grep not
ldd ./viewer | grep not
ldd ./remotemks | grep not

Examine the output for missing libraries.

If these steps produce no output, all of the required libraries are available.


Install any libraries that are indicated as missing.
