VMware Tools Slackware package
I just installed Slackware 12.0 on a virtual machine (in VMware Server 1.0.5) and was going to install VMware Tools next.
There are two installers available:
The TGZ appears to be a binary distribution with a script (vmware-install.pl) that you run after you uncompress and untar. The RPM is probably a regular binary RPM, but I can't tell because I'm not able to read it yet
I've tried src2pkg, rpm2tgz, and disrpm, and I get some variation of:
disrpm: failed to find anything -- maybe HEADER_SIZE is too small (currently 256000, see line 14)
I was going to try playing with src2pkg and something like -i="vmware-install.pl", but wanted to check with folks here to see:
(1) Is there already an existing repackaging of the VMware Tools for Slackware available? I checked on SlackBuilds.org, but didn't find anything. I was hoping to see something like the repackaging of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
(2) Has someone has tread this path already and figured out something that plays nicely with Slackware package management? Or are folks just trusting vmware-install.pl and going for it?
