Installing vmware tools on fedora core 11

Filed under: Uncategorized — oscartheduck @ 2:49 pm

Simple enough jobbie, totally standard.

Install your virtual machine, then run:

sudo yum -y install gcc kernel-devel patch make

I forget whether fedora set up sudo by default or if I did it myself. Either way, not a hard job. /etc/sudoers will have everything in it you need. Might want to consider setting up the wheel integration and adding yourself in /etc/groups

Anyway, after that it’s as simple as clicking the “install vmware tools” jobbie in vmware, then extract the tarball and run ./vmware-install.pl as root from the appropriate directory. Simple. VMware will automatically add itself as a startup service, so no worries after that.

Now I can install opennms and refamiliarise…
