I am trying to install VMwareTools-8.4.6-385536.tar.gz (VMWare Tools) on the following operating system:
Linux ubuntu 2.6.38-8-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:31:50 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I am using VMPlayer version 3.1.4 - build 385536
After starting the installation I am getting the following errors:
What is the directory that contains the init scripts? [/etc/init.d] Error opening No such file or directory
Distribution provided drivers for Xorg X server are used. Skipping X configuration because X drivers are not included. Creating a new initrd boot image for the kernel.<br> update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.38-8-generic Starting VMware Tools services in the virtual machine: Switching to guest configuration: done Blocking file system: done Guest operating system daemon: failed Virtual Printing daemon: done Unable to start services for VMware Tools
Can somebody help in this?
