Where is the best place to find resources on how to install VMware Tools on a Fedora guest? I had some trouble with Fedora 14 in the past and now I'm trying Fedora 15.

The host is Windows and I am using VMware Workstation as the hypervisor.


Here is a tutorial: Installing VMWare Tools on Fedora.

VMTools on Fedora should work.

If you have the option of installing Managed VMware Tools from VM Workstation then you also need to install Development Tools and kernel-devel to compile the tools yourself.

Otherwise try these RPMs for unmanaged support. The same is true for VMware ESX, etc.
