When I attempt to run any of the preinstalled GUI apps with
startx it fails to run and terminates with the output
failed to load module "vmwgfx" (module does not exist, 0)"
...xterm... several times. Sorry I do not have the full output handy to copy and paste here.
Apparently the GNOME GUI isn't going to run out-of-the-box here, and a VMWare tools installation is needed. So as I'm waiting on the next image to download, in a lengthy process of trial and error, installation, and VMWare tools patches,can someone suggest which configuration is most likely to succeed in running
gedit with the least amount of hassle?
I have a Windows 7 64-bit host running Backtrack 5 RX with VMWare Workstation 9. Is there any reason one of either GNOME or KDE might be more compatible than the other with a VMWare + Backtrack?
