Re: Why not use Qemu images? by Digital Vampire (not verified) There are several reasons to use or not to use both either Qemu or VMware. It is mainly just preference. Personally, I prefer QEMU. It is a little harder to set up, but once it is, the fact that I can just click on a Linux/Windows/Mac/BSD icon on my desktop and a fully functional OS pop up in a dedicated window is nice, but, again, mainly preference. Also, I would recommend the May 2006 issue of Linux Journal to those who want a more in depth look at each. It also covers Xen and User-Mode Linux.

So, at 1st glance it looks a problem with the vmware image. Re: Superkaramba/liquid wheather not working by Anonymous (not verified) Liquid Weather v13.0 RC2 runs just fine for me with that image.
