    Configuring VMTOOLS on Redhat linux 5

    yaki5 Novice

      There is all kind of changes in RHEL5 release.

      In order to compile vmtools version - the following steps should be taken:

      (There can be different versions of libraries - use "TAB" key in order to get the proper version)

      1. GCC - if gcc isn't installed try to use add/remove components or

      use the second disk of RHEL5:

      rpm -i ./2/Server/gcc-4.1.1-52.el5.x86_64.rpm ./2/Server/gcc-c+-4.1.1-52.el5.x86_64.rpm ./2/Server/libstdc+-devel-4.1.1-52.el5.x86_64.rpm ./2/Server/libgomp-4.1.1-52.el5.x86_64.rpm

      2. Kernel-Headers -

      rpm -i ./1/Server/kernel-headers-2.6.18-8.el5.x86_64.rpm

      3. And finally create link to the needed location:

      ln -s /usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-8.el5-x86_64 /usr/src/linux
