BT3b VMware Tools
I just got BT3b installed on my XP machine using VMware Workstation 6.0.3, works great.
A quick google led me to VMware's site on how to install VMware tools. Installed ok it seems, I can see the process there with ps -aux. Still not working though.
Then I notice the bottom "Your VMware Tools is out of date."
Anyone else had this issue? How can it be out of date ¬.¬ I just installed it
Thanks for the reply.
I did it all again, still says out of date.
The only error I get at the end is when it says I need to run vmware-config-tools.pl. When I do I get error:
Unable to create symlink"/etc/pam.d/vmware-guestd" pointing to file "/usr/lib/vmware-tools/configurator/pam.d/vmware-guestd".
+ Done vmware-toolbox
Found this thread:
There are 2 solutions.
1. mkdir /etc/pam.d
This didnt work, it got me further but its asking me for C header files for this kernel (and they dont exist at the default location of /usr/src/linux/include)
2. Install Pam Compliments
Gonna try this now!
Ok, didnt work weither, get same prompt about these C headers.
But...for anyone else to got stuck like me installing pam...
I tried running doinst.sh and got loads of permission errors although they looked ok. Tried chmod 777 and everything else.
In the end all I had to do was installpkg filename.gz lol
Still not got VMware-tools running properly yet though
installing pam compliments (http://www.linuxpackages.net/download.php?id=11397) worked for me.
I just accepted the default location for the C header files (which is different from your defaults) - (/lib/modules/188.8.131.52/build/include)
