the X11 version is not any more maintained. Generic was the old name of 
the project and when we moved to Common we dropped X11 as stated on the 
Wiki page.

Until now we have not try to create images for vmware, so if you 
troubleshoot the issue and report your workaround we will be please to 
see how we could make that mode of operation easier to support.
The coming release should have the support for the emulator added that 
might help.

Thanks to let us know.
