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

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:
