    Default vmware tools

    I'm running bt3 in vmware fusion (mac).

    I've tried installing vmware tools, but at a certain point it wants the location of the C header files that match the running kernel.
    But I don't know where they are or if they are even in bt3.
    VMware thinks they should be in /usr/src/linux/include, but it ain't there.

    It worked fine in bt2 btw.

    C header are located in this path.
    >/usr/src/linux/include

    but only in the "BackTrack 3 Beta USB version (946 mb)" version

    For the ISO version I'm pretty sure you can download the kernel header files that are the front page of the backtrack wiki site and just direct the install to wherever you store the files

    I'm having some trouble getting the tools to auto start. I tried the tutorial from ND4SPD but it doesn't seem to be working in bt3.
