I have a few CentOS 6.1 VMs built on Vsphere 4.1. That build is fine. I'm having problems in getting VMware tools installed on each VM.1. What is the best version of VMware Tool... [by rarebearnm]

VMware has released VMware vSphere 5, the latest version of it flagship virtualisation platform, saying it comes with almost 200 new and enhanced capabilities. VMware also announced new versions of other key virtualisation tools: VMware vShield 5, VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager 5, and VMware vCloud Director 1.5.
I have VMware player 5.0.2 running on CentOS 6.4. I have a couple of Windows XP guests built for testing and other occasional use. Today I wanted to shrink the disk on one of them. For the past many years I would simply double click on the VM icon in the system tray and that would bring up the Tools gui to allow me to perform various functions.
I uninstalled the open-vmtools non-sense
removed the remaining modules from it (no clean work from suse here)
installed gcc, make, kernel-source and kernel-headers
installed the vmware-tools rpm
i started vmware-configure-tools and it says that my kernel was built with gcc 4.4.1 while i try to use version 4.4 now....
I installed vmware tools (VMwareTools-9.0.5-1065307.tar.gz) in my VM running rhel 6.4. After installation, when I checked the summary of machine in VM guest it shows the VMware tools as outdated. How can I resolved this issue and make vmware tools as recent.
Hi there,I've installed Arch Linux as a guest, and have followed the guide pretty well. I however came across a problem where I'm not able to start Unity even though I've successfully installed open-vm-tools and modules. It tells me that vmware tools isn't installed and that it can't change the resolution.
