vmware server 2.5 Vmware tools in slackware 12
 
Hi,

I've successfully installed slackware 12 in a vm in a ESX 2.5.3 server.

It run goods and X run also (KDE)

I want to install the vmware-tolls but it don't wan't to install, it say:

Code:

bash: ./vmware-install.pl: /usr/bin/perl: bad interpreter: no such file or directory
when I run the "vmware-install.pl" file

Why?

Thanks

I haven't installed the vmware tools in an ESX 2.5.3 server environment, but it looks like a typo in the script - it should be /usr/bin/perl (or whatever the path to your perl is) not usr/bin/perl

sorry, my typo , the slash was there

OK - and is that the location of perl on your system? That error is saying that it can't find the perl binary at the location it expected.

I think you also can say perl (on some systems) so as for it to use perl (wherever perl is at on your sys).

perl vmware-install.pl

or

perl ./vmware-install.pl

--

al@p3srv:~$ which perl
/usr/bin/perl

Slackware 11.0 default

but

This links into your *host* OS (I think, doesn't it?. You have not stated what your host OS is. Slackware is a guest OS in your case since you said it is in the virtual machine.

IOW I'm wondering if this is a host OS issue (where is perl at on the host OS).

Ok, I have it.

Problem with my Perl installation? I have reinstall the package and now it work.

Acummings: VMware ESX Server does not have any "host" OS preinstall.

You install the vmware server directly on a blank hardrive and run virtualmachine from it.

I have another issue.

The installation need the kernel source. but it say my source and my running kernel are not the same:

Code:

The directory of kernel header (version @@VMWARE@@ UTS_RELEASE) does not match
your running kernel (version 2.6.21.5-smp).  Even if the module were to compile
successfully, it would not load into the running lernel.

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/inclue]

I've found that I can remediate to this probleme with a patch "vmware-any-any-update109.tar.gz " that can be found on internet. but it makes error when I try to install it. I't don't seams to like my version of vmware tools.
