    Problem installing vmware tools in gust mythubuntu 9.10

    mierdatuti Novice








      I'm trying to install vmware tools in my guest mythubuntu 9.10. Everithing seems ok but when I reboot I can't boot with startx. When I install the wmare tools it says me:






      make: Leaving directory `/tmp/vmware-config1/vsock-only'

      The vsock module loads perfectly into the running kernel.




      Detected X.org version 7.5.4.




      The configuration file /etc/X11/xorg.conf can not be found. Do you want to

      create a new one? (yes/no)


      /bin/grep: /etc/fedora-release: No such file or directory

      /bin/grep: /etc/SuSE-release: No such file or directory

      Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)

      utility, e.g. service hal restart


      Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an

      Upstart job, you may also use the restart(8) utility, e.g. restart hal

      hal start/running, process 12832

      You must restart your X session before any mouse or graphics changes take



      You can now run VMware Tools by invoking the following command:

      "/usr/bin/vmware-toolbox" during an X server session.


      To enable advanced X features (e.g., guest resolution fit, drag and drop, and

      file and text copy/paste), you will need to do one (or more) of the following:

      1. Manually start /usr/bin/vmware-user

      2. Log out and log back into your desktop session; and,

      3. Restart your X session.


      To use the vmxnet driver, restart networking using the following commands:

      /etc/init.d/networking stop

      rmmod pcnet32

      rmmod vmxnet

      modprobe vmxnet

      /etc/init.d/networking start





      Any help?



      Many thanks and sorry for my english!
