VMware Tools config problems on SlackWare 11
Good morning to everybody,
After successfully installing SlackWare 11.0 on VMware Workstation 5.5 winXP, I've tried to install vmware tools with tar installer.
I used the rcx.d hack found in the forum and proceed.
On a question to overwrite /etc/vmware-tools giving answer yes caused exit, so afterwards I respond no and install continued.
After completion, I've tried to run /usr/bin/vmware-config-tools.pl but got this message
sh: /etc/vmware is a directory
Making sure services for VMware Tools are stopped.
Unable to stop services for VMware tools
Please if you have a solution, please be precise. I'm a newbie to linux and I must use SlackWare for my university undergraduate projects
Thanks in advance
Maybe you've to kill the vmware services first (by using e.g. Ksysguard)?
The vmware tools script searches for the vmware start|stop|restart script in /etc/init.d/ no matter where you actually put it. If you put init.d and your rcX.d scripts in /etc/rc.d, then all you'll need is a symlink.
