Subject: [gentoo-user] having problems installing vmware-tools- in gentoo guest
Date: Fri, 20 Apr 2012 10:04:47
1 Hi. I have a gentoo guest under vmware fusion and it asked me to
2 upgrade vmware tools and I am trying to install and configure
3 vmware-tools. However, I get the following when I try to configure:
5 Before you can compile modules, you need to have the following
6 installed...
8 make
9 gcc
10 kernel headers of the running kernel
13 Searching for GCC...
14 The path "/usr/bin/gcc" is not valid path to the gcc binary.
15 Would you like to change it? [yes]
17 But there seems to be no wayto get this to work -- the only thing I saw
18 was for Debian to install libglib2-0, but nothing for gentoo. I am
19 using unstable gentoo which I need to update to latest kernel, etc.
21 Thanks in advance for any ideas.
