fedora on fusion - kernel 2.6.25.10

Postby f2 » Tue Jul 22, 2008 4:16 am

Hello there,
I am trying to get my vmware tools (VMwareTools-7.6.3-94249.tar.gz) from Fusion (1.1.3) to install. There are errors due to the definition of some types in multiple places (see below). the result is that I get only clipboard, resolution and mouse handling, but folders, drag and drop, etc are out.

Thanks for any help -Federico

Trying to find a suitable vmmemctl module for your running kernel.

None of the pre-built vmmemctl modules for VMware Tools is suitable for your
running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmemctl module
for your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)?
[yes]

Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

kernel? [/lib/modules/2.6.25.10-86.fc9.i686/build/include]

The memory manager driver (vmmemctl module) is used by VMware host software to
efficiently reclaim memory from a virtual machine.
If the driver is not available, VMware host software may instead need to swap
guest memory to disk, which may reduce performance.
The rest of the software provided by VMware Tools is designed to work
independently of this feature.
If you want the memory management feature, you can install the driver by
running vmware-config-tools.pl again after making sure that gcc, binutils, make
and the kernel sources for your running kernel are installed on your machine.
These packages are available on your distribution's installation CD.

Starting VMware Tools services in the virtual machine:
Switching to guest configuration: [ OK ]
DMA setup: [ OK ]
Guest operating system daemon: [ OK ]

The configuration of VMware Tools 7.6.3 build-94249 for Linux for this running
kernel completed successfully.

You must restart your X session before any mouse or graphics changes take
effect.

You can now run VMware Tools by invoking the following command:
"/usr/bin/vmware-toolbox" during an X server session.

To make use of the virtual printer, you will need to restart the CUPS service

If you wish to configure any experimental features, please run the following
command: "vmware-config-tools.pl --experimental".

Enjoy,

Sorry for the late reply (I've been very busy over the last few weeks).

Could you please attach the vmnet.tar, vmdesched.tar, vmhgfs.tar, etc. files to your next post or send them to me via e-mail so I can patch them up to work on the desired kernel?
