OK, here we go
(I have version 5.5 of VMware Workstation installed - but in concept this should work for 6.0 as well)
First make sure that you have the kernel headers installed (Package name: kernel-headers).*EDIT: the kernel sources (package kernel-source) is also needed*EDIT
These are used to build the vmware module.
Then copy the file VMwareTools-6.0.0-45731.tar.gz from the virtual cdrom drive to a location on your harddisk, for example /tmp
Drop to a console window and type the following:
(give the root password to become super user)
tar xvzf VMwareTools-6.0.0-45731.tar.gz
This will unpack the VMware Tools archive.
Before you run the install script you must create a few directories. Otherwise vmware will complain about these missing:
mkdir rc0.d rc1.d rc2.d rc3.d rc4.d rc5.d rc6.d
Now change into the newly created directory and run the install script:
(Make sure you type the dot as well!)
Answer the configuration questions on the screen. You can just press Enter to accept the default values.
Now log out of the graphical environment (or reboot the virtual machine).
After logging in again launch VMware Tools as a background application in a console window:
Just must do this with every reboot. (just keep it running as long as the system is switched on)
Note: after upgrading the Pardus kernel you will have to recompile the vmware module. To do this go into a console and type:
Happy VM-ing ;-)
