Installing VMWare-tools in Debian

Thursday, October 12th, 2006

I found this information on a german site and it’s fairly simple to do.
First you need to determine your kernel version.

 debian-lamp:~#uname -r

Secondly you need to install some standard tools:

 apt-get install make binutils cpp cpp-3.3 gcc-3.3 autoconf automake gcc

Then you need to install the matching kernel-headers. Remark that the numbering after “kernel-headers-” is the same as your kernel version .

 apt-get install kernel-headers-2.6.8-2-386

Make a necessary soft link.

  mkdir -p /usr/src/linux
 ln -s /usr/src/kernel-headers-2.6.8-2-386/include /usr/src/linux/include

Mount your cdrom

  mkdir /mnt/vmware
 mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/vmware

Extract and install VMwareTools

  cd /tmp/
 tar xvzf /mnt/vmware/VMwareTools*.tar.gz
 cd vmware-tools-distrib/

Reset your networking

  /etc/init.d/networking stop
 rmmod pcnet32
 rmmod vmxnet
 depmod -a
 modprobe vmxnet
 /etc/init.d/networking start
