3) Install glib (./configure && make && make install)
4) Satisfy dependencies of open-vm-tools (i finished with ./configure --without-dnet --without-x --without-unity && make && make install). Also lots of lib***-dev required, i had to switch current repo to "jaunty" release.
5) Reboot and run
P.S. Started to hate linux
