19 June 2010

Many constraints in use in vmware but I will give a solution in order to run properly. One way to monitor vmware Resolution can be set to 1024 × 768 or higher and Copy paste from host to guest running is a way to install VMWare Tools.
Well, for the configure follow these steps;

STEP 1: go to root and install package for kernel-module
$su -
#yum install gcc kernel-devel gcc-c++

STEP 2: After the guest operating system has started, prepare your virtual machine to install VMware Tools.  
> On the menu bar select vmware VM and select Install VMware Tools.
After the above command will show an icon CD / DVD drive on the desktop then click on the icon. Inside there is a file extension TAR will be executed through the terminal. Copy the file to the desired folder for the extracted( for this post I chose mnt folder for the extracted ). to copy the file typing the command:
$sudo nautilus
Description: To make it easier to copy files without a complex command in the terminal, stay in the drop or copy and paste to a explore in fedora
STEP 3: Now enter as root, and extract the file in the folder that you copied. And typing the command:
#tar -C /tmp -zxvf /mnt/???/VMwareTools!!!.tar.gz

Description : the sign (???) is the icon file that copied a CD / DVD to a folder that you want it earlier. Marks (!!!) is your version of vmware tools.
For direct version, extract icon from the CD / DVD typing this command:
#tar zxf /mnt/cdrom/VMwareTools!!!tar.gz
Description: a sign (!!!) is the file version of vmware tools. Usually Linux distributions automatically mount CD-ROM. If your CD-ROM drive is not mounted or CD-ROM drive does not automount, then you must modify the following command to mount the CD-ROM that can be extracted.
#mount /dev/cdrom/mnt/cdrom
#cd /tmp 

STEP 4 : Once extracted into the folder you extracted it and install it with the following command:
#cd /tmp/vmware-tools-distrib
install the package in the folder
#./vmware-install.pl
If there are questions that are recommended on the installation, follow the command by default
