I have Workstation 7.1.x and unfortunately it won't open the VMware image for BT5r2 (it says it was created in an earlier version).
So I did a fresh install of Backtrack 5 R2 from the DVD .iso into a new VM machine. Now I'm trying to install the vmware tools. The ones from my VMware Workstation aren't fully installing because they don't support the latest kernel (I assume)
I did some research and found this thread:
which led me to this alternative:
but the latest file there is from December and it won't compile (error: glib >= 2.6.0 is required)
I'm not sure what files I need, when I do: apt-cache search "glib" I get a ton of items that have glib in their name but none just glib.
Has anyone with a version of VMware Workstation under version 8 managed to get the tools installed?
