Install open-vm-tools on Debian 4.0 (Etch)

Posted 09-29-2008 at 12:55 AM by sridhar11

VMware Inc. released an OpenSource version of their VMware-Tools, called open-vm-tools. While they’re quite easy to install on Gentoo (emerge open-vm-tools), it’s not that easy having them installed on a Debian Etch (4.0) if you want to go the proper way.

package does not update

Posted 09-27-2008 at 06:01 AM by walter81

Hi there,

I have a working Mandriva Free 2008.1 distribution and want to update glibc.
My current version is 2.7-12.

The Software Manager did not find glibc as an independent package.

I have downloaded version 2.18.0. ./configure, make, make install work without any errors but rmp -q glibc returns the older version.

I have tried searching for an RMP package of glibc but till now I did not find it.

Any ideas?
...
