    Default VMWare Image Installation issue

    Hi all

    I have downloaded "BackTrack 4 Final Release VMWare Image" opened the pre-configured VM, logged in under root, and now following the BackTrack Tuorial, I am stuck at this stage:

    mount /dev/cdrom3 /mnt/cdrom
    cp /mnt/cdrom/VMwareTools-{version}.tar.gz /tmp/
    cd /tmp/
    tar zxpf VMwareTools-{version}.tar.gz
    cd vmware-tools-distrib
    ./vmware-install.pl

    How to I find out which version I am running?

    I have skipped step 1:

    apt-get update
    apt-get install linux-source
    cd /usr/src
    tar jxpf linux-source-{version}.tar.bz2
    ln -s linux-source-{version} linux
    cd linux
    zcat /proc/config.gz > .config
    make scripts
    make prepare

    Purely because I am not currently connected to the net.

    Help please.

    I have moved your thread here.

    READ the descriptions of the forums before you post. The HowTo forum is NOT for asking questions!

    Maybe you also want to clarify which tutorial you are following and the particular program that you want to know the version of.

    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.

    You should connect to net
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/networking start
    And cause you are trying to install VMwaretools to BT4, why wouldn't install whole BT4 urself? Its really easy, and it worth of it.

    I installed BT4 and then VMware tools. Installing VMwaretools to BT4 vmwareimage didnt work for me.
