Maybe it's the drugs, maybe it's the boxing career....I dunno. But, I am having what seems to be a newbie problem that I just can't figure out.
I wanted a clean install of BT3, so I downloaded the vmware image and went from there.
I updated fast-track, then updated all under the fast-track menu. I then upgraded the vm from the vmware menu to 6 because I could not install the vmware tools (it just showed a blank image and no tools to install).
That didn't help either. When I try and install vmware's tools, BT3 opens a file explorer that shows nothing.
I have searched the forums and cannot seem to find an answer to this seemingly simple task.
Damn I feel stupid.....
I think you have to manually mount the tools:
mount -t iso9660 /mnt/cdrom (or where ever the cdrom mount point is)
cp * /tmp
(that is if memory serves correctly)
try mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom instead of mount -t iso9660
Does this mean anything?
