after I started to install the vmware tools in the vm machine and rebooted system prompted to use the shell for a while, but this seems to take forever
I ran TOP and can see vmtoolsd is there running
I did have where I think might be a concern, when installing the tools, prompted for the kernel header file, seems I didn't manage to point it to the correct location. but anyways I am not stopped there.
but currently the installation don't seem to proceed, how can I verify the progress of the tooling installation? can I re-do the process? and is there a more convinient way to install the vmware tools to the vm machien ?
my current screen :
vmware easy install
please wait! vmware tools is currently being installed on your system. depending on the version of ubuntu you are installing. you may login in below and use the system during the installation. otherwise, please wait for the graphical environment to lanuch. Thank you.
I did the following to installation
mirror the installation package which sit under the vmware folder ( searched result told me that the vmware tool is name as linux.zip )
copy that installation file to /tmp and started to install
