Installing VMware Tools for Fedora

What Happened?

  • In VMware Fusion selected “Virtual Machine” –> “Install VMware Tools”
  • In a terminal navigate to folder with install file “/home/mike/Desktop/vmware-tools-distrib/”
  • Ran install with “./vmware-install.pl”
  • Accepted all default answers to prompts

Problem

Was prompted with:

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]



The path “/usr/src/linux/include” is not an existing directory.

Fix

  • Get kernal package name by entering “uname -r” into your terminal.
  • The returned string is what you need to search for in google. Might look like “2.6.27.21-170.2.56.fc10.i686”
  • Download the C header package found in your google search and install. I found mine at “http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=kernel-devel”
  • Installed C header files ended up in “/usr/src/kernels/[package name]/include/” for me. “[package name]” is the name of the package you downloaded and installed.

Hopefully doing that works for you as well as it did for me. Would love to hear if this helped and let me know if you have any questions.

Manually Customize Mac Icons

I know that there are free and paid Mac applications that will change system icons but sometimes I am just too cheap to pay for an application that does what I can do in a few seconds or the application doesn’t do exactly what I want it to. So, in light of all of this I have created my own how to video and posted it to the web adding to the plethora of icon changing how to videos.

Browser Security

pwn2own_browsersI have been upset with Google for taking soo long to put out their Apple version of their Chrome browser. After reading an article on ZDNet about the Pawn2Own hacker event maybe I can give Google some slack. :-) I still want my Chrome ASAP if it is as good as the windows version though. Google seems to be heading in the right direction with their sandbox model for their browser. I am sad that Apple has done so little to create road blocks for hackers but I guess that is expected when you have such a low market share. Now go and read the article and make your own decision on what browser you are going to use. Questions for Pwn2Own hacker Charlie Miller
