I'm having issue with VMWare tools even after following the guide, as follows:
1. When executing " apt-get install open-vm-tools " command, I get this error:
"Package open-vm-tools is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source"
2. I downloaded open-vm-tools and tried to compile them manually, I get this error:
" checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
configure: error: Can't find include dir under /lib/modules/3.7-trunk-686-pae
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
make: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop."
3. I tried to use the native tools, I'm stuck at the step:
" apt-get install gcc make linux-headers-$(uname -r)
I get this error
"Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package linux-headers-3.7-trunk-686-pae
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'linux-headers-3.7-trunk-686-pae' "
4. Even when trying to install from ./vmware-install.pl .. I'm stuck here:
"Searching for a valid kernel header path...
The path "" is not a valid path to the 3.7-trunk-686-pae kernel headers.
Would you like to change it? [yes]
Enter the path to the kernel header files for the 3.7-trunk-686-pae kernel?
Thanks in advance!
