Installation and configuration of Vmware tools in BT5 under Fusion ver 3.1.2 (latest stable) failed due to make errors.
(see my post at http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...tml#post196793 ) for detailed error messages)
Turns out the tools need to be patched for kernel 2.6.37 and above (including the 2.6.38 kernel in BT5). The patch and instructions can be found here:
The tools worked after the patch, however I am still struggling with the sound. Upon trying to set the sound preferences in the Gnome desktop I get error message "Waiting for sound system to respond." Also no sound!
Sound works fine now. Check out general Gnome audio fix posts from: 2901119 & Sickness
