When I install WMWare tools, I get this error for vmhgfs:
/tmp/vmware-root/modules/vmhgfs-only/filesystem.c:47:28: fatal error: linux/smp_lock.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated. compilation terminated. make: *** [/tmp/vmware-root/modules/vmhgfs-only/filesystem.o] Error 1 make: *** [_module_/tmp/vmware-root/modules/vmhgfs-only] Error 2 make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.0.0-12-generic' make: *** [vmhgfs.ko] Error 2 make: Leaving directory `/tmp/vmware-root/modules/vmhgfs-only' If you wish to have the shared folders feature, you can install the driver by running vmware-config-tools.pl again after making sure that gcc, binutils, make and the kernel sources for your running kernel are installed on your machine. These packages are available on your distribution's installation CD.
/mnt/hgfs is empty when sharing. If I run
vmware-hgfsclient in a terminal, I get the list of shared folders but
/mnt/hgfs is empty.
i try to new version of vmware tools with vm machin but it very slowly And during the download is interrupted. can you give me link for tar.gz file?
