Thumbs up CentOS 6.2 VMware Tools Install


Initiate the VMware tools install on your CentOS 6.2 VM. Open a SSH session to your VM and copy/paste this:


yum -y install perl
mkdir /mnt/cdrom
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
cp /mnt/cdrom/VMwareTools-*.tar.gz /tmp
umount /mnt/cdrom
tar -zxf /tmp/VMwareTools-*.tar.gz -C /tmp
cd /
./tmp/vmware-tools-distrib/vmware-install.pl --default
rm -f /tmp/VMwareTools-*.tar.gz
rm -rf /tmp/vmware-tools-distrib


Bam! VMware Tools installed!

These are essentially the same instructions as you can find on the VMWare site, except theirs are more detailed:
http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/mic...rnalId=1018414

and to add ,if you try this on a CentOS 6.2 box
Code:
yum -y install perl
you WILL get an error
The cent 6.2 repos have been moved to the "Vault"
and CentOS is ONLY supporting CentOS 6.4 and 5.9
