Fedora :: Installing VMware Tools In 12 Guest?

Feb 5, 2010

[There are quite a few outdated guides relating to older versions of Fedora, so I figured that I'll write it up specifically for Fedora 12 to make life easier for others]

This guide is based on a fully patched Fedora 12 distribution as of Feb 5 2009.

A default install of Fedora 12 as a VMware Image (Guest) will generally fail to install VMware Tools for the following reasons (In the Fedora 12 Guest Image):

1. GCC and related packages are not installed

Make sure that 'yum list gcc*' has at least the following packages installed (these are not installed by default unless you select developer configuration).

[root@localhost ~]# yum list gcc*
Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit
Installed Packages
gcc.i686 4.4.2-20.fc12 @updates
gcc-c++.i686 4.4.2-20.fc12 @updates

2. Correct kernel-devel packages are not installed. This generally manifests itself via the following prompt:
'What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel?'

Fedora 12 installs kernel-PAE by default instead of the normal kernel rpm for the i386 distribution. Consequently, the header files required by are found in 'kernel-PAE-devel' and not 'kernel-devel'.

[root@localhost ~]# yum list kernel*
Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit
Installed Packages


The symlink /lib/modules/ should work if the correct kernel-*-devel package is installed. seems to only check this link to determine if it has found a legitimate kernel header directory.

The path to "/usr/src/kernels/" is not valid..

General :: VMware Snapshot With VMware Tools Loses Network On Restart - Host XP - Guest Fedora

Oct 3, 2010

I have been using VMware Player for some time to host Fedora VMware images on Windows XP. I have been using Fedora 11 and 12 (both 32 and 64 bit) and recently started to use Fedora 13.

I use as a base the images provided by thoughtpolice.

I usually install VMware tools and also keep the images updated (yum update) which sometimes changes the kernel.

I have recently had problems with the snapshots not having a network when I restore them. So far I don't have the problem with Fedora 11 and do have it with Fedora 12 (but used not to). I do have it with Fedora 13.

In each case the problem goes away when I uninstall the VMware tools and comes back when I install them again.

One of the symptoms is that SElinux complains about not being able to do something with /var/run/vmware-active-nics.

It looks to me that something is incorrect in the actions being taken when the snapshot is being restored. It does not happen every time and sometimes the network restores itself.

The network can be restored by rebooting the image.

Ubuntu :: Open VMware Tools Aren't Detected By VMware Workstation

Jul 17, 2011

I have installed the latest version of Ubuntu Linux (11.04) into latest VMware workstation (7.1.4 build-385536). I have tried to install the VMware tools ISO that came with VMware workstation but It didn't work and the installation seemed real sloppy anyways.

I installed the open VMware tools from synaptic within the guest linux and restarted, everything seemed to have been installed just fine but VMware Workstation doesn't detect it. I'm not sure if the tools are outdated, silent errors happened, or if any manual post installation steps need to be taken.

getting any form of VMware tools to run in Linux and detected by VMware Workstation.

Software :: How To Check VMware Tools Version

Nov 11, 2010

We have installed vmware tools (open-vm-tools) on Ubuntu Hardy which is comaptible with the ESX 4.1. The packages are installed adding a repo.

deb [URL] main restricted

The Ubuntu VM is presently running on ESX 3.5, we will soon upgrade it to 4.0. How can I confirm which version of vmware-tools is running on the Guest Ubuntu VM? When we upgrade to new ESX version, the vmtools must be intact.

Fedora Installation :: Error While Trying To Install Vmware Tools - 11

Oct 22, 2009

I have Vmware Fusion 2.0.6 (196839) running on my MacBook Pro. I installed Fedora 11 on the fusion and it works fine. The only problem that I am having is that when I try to install vmware tools, by runnning ./ in the terminal, I am prompted with this message: What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]

If I press Enter, the same message pops up. I am fairly new to linux, and I am just setting this up so I can set up a web server on this virtual machine for testing purposes.

the kernel that I have running is:

root@box1 include# uname -r

CentOS 5 :: Vmware-tools Saying Kernel Headers Don't Match / Why Is So?

Jul 4, 2010

2.6.18-194.8.1.el5xen is the reported kernel that I'm running while the headers that are installed are listed as 2.6.18-194.8.1.el5-i686. I assume these are the same, or at least close enough that it shouldn't matter.

However, when I run to configure it it says it cannot find the kernel headers. I've tried pointing it to /usr/src/2.6.18-194.8.1.el5-i686/ and /usr/src/2.6.18-194.8.1.el5-i686/include (not sure which of the two I'm supposed to do as online instructions contradict one another) it says that is invalid and there seems to be no way to force it since it just complains without letting me use it anyway. What can I do? Running centos 5 btw on vmware workstation 7.

Fedora Installation :: VMware Tools For The Sake Of The SVGA Driver Alone?

Feb 3, 2011

I'm trying to install VMware Tools for the sake of the SVGA driver alone. For the life of me, I cannot get it to work. I'm able to run ./ but when it comes to configuring it that's where I've run into trouble. I've been trying and trying and trying and trying all morning to get this to work and I'm getting very frustrated now. It keeps asking me, "What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel?" I've Googled this and read several threads on the issue, tried every conceivable path I think it might be and it keeps coming back again and again saying "The path "<path>" is not valid. Would you like to change it?" WTF!? Can somebody please tell me what the default location of the C header files is under Fedora 14? Geez Louise I just want to install VMware Tools, for Christ's sake! It shouldn't be this difficult. BTW,

Fedora Installation :: Failing Installing Development Tools?

Mar 12, 2009

I installed Fedora 10 on an 8 GB USB-stick using the creator-software for windows. Sadly I am not so familiar with linux but as I am now trying Fedora on a friend's advice I really start to like it

Unfortunatels there ist a problem: I wanted to compile a driver for my wlan-card but got the known error "make: command not found". So I searched this forum and found in this thread that I need to install the development tools. But when I try to do so by typing yum groupinstall "Development Tools" it first starts but then cancels with an error message claiming missing dependencies to a perl package:


Fehler: Fehlende Abh�ngigkeit: perl = 4:5.10.0-49.fc10 wird ben�tigt von Paket 1erl-Pod-Escapes-1.04-49.fc10.i386 (installed)

Due to my ignorance I tried yum install perl but this also fails with the same error message I am sure it is just a bite for you but I don't hava a clue right now By the way I already can call the command make install now for the wlan-card driver. It also starts but fails and says:

Ubuntu :: Installing Backtrack Tools With Menu Structure In Kubuntu 9.10

Feb 5, 2010

Installing backtrack4 tools with menu structure in Kubuntu 9.10 *NOTE* This WILL break your kpackagekit !!! You will need to reinstall kpackagekit after the installation is complete or fix it with synaptic. *This may or may not break your system so do at your own risk* For this to work you will need to follow these instructions EXACTLY as it is here. Go to: [URL] Download the tarzip and open it up. INSTALLING THE BACKTRACK SUB MENU STRUCTURE

Place the menu_backup folder in your home directory. <<----YOU WILL NEED THIS FOR THIS TO WORK Open the BT4-app-list folder and place the backtrack.txt1 file also in your home directory. Open a shell and type: kdesudo dolphin /etc/xdg/menus Delete the file. (dont worry, I have provided a backup copy in the download) Open the folder and place it where you deleted the old menu. Now you can exit.

Now you have the bt4 sub menu. ADDING THE BT4 GPG KEY AND REPO Open a shell and type: wget -q [URL] This adds the GPG key. Then in a shell type: sudo echo "deb [URL] pwnsauce main microverse macroverse restricted universe multiverse" > /etc/apt/sources.list
