Access denied error while installing the VMWare player on headless centOS


Dear Gurus

I have error installing the VMWare player on the following machine

# uname -a
Linux ks302931.kimsufi.com 2.6.28.1-xxxx-std-ipv4-32 #2 SMP Fri Jan 30 09:55:02 UTC 2009 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux


When I run the RPM installer (As root), I got the following Error:


rpm -e VMware-Player-2.5.2-156735.i386
# rpm -ihv VMware-Player-2.5.2-156735.i386.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
1:VMware-Player ########################################### [100%]
Extracting VMware Installer...done.
/var/cache/vmware/VMware-Player-2.5.2-156735.i386.bundle: line 301: /tmp/vmis.y10487/install/vmware-installer/vmware-installer: Permission denied
#



I went to the line 301 in the bundle file, this is what I got:


Line 299 ---># Pass all options the user passed in so that the correct UI type
Line 300 ---># gets set.
Line 301 ---> if ! "$installer" --set-setting vmware-installer.libconf "$libconf" \
--install-component "$source"/vmware-installer \
--install-bundle "$bundle" "$@"; then*
exit 1
fi

return 0
Does anyone know whats going on? what am I doing wrong here?

Any help would be highly appreciated, thanks

This just happened to me on a RedHat Enterprise Linux 6 server.

Check to see if /tmp is mounted with noexec.

if it is, you will need to:
mount -o remount, exec /tmp
