    RobMokkink Expert

      During our unattendant installation of centos 5, we install the vmware-tools using the vmware repo. In the packe section i specify

       

      %packages

      vmware-tools

       

      But when i now wan't to upgrade the tools i get the following errors related to x86config, which is not installed on the system:

      I know Centos isn't RHEL, but they are 100% identical, so i should work.

       

      Or do i need to rebuild the Source RPM myself??
