What is the build number of Ubuntu 8.10? I have to enter it for tar installer at the command prompt. enter: tar zxpf /mnt/cdrom/vmwareTools-<XXXX>.tar.gz umount /dev/cdrom. The value <XXXX> is the build number of the product release. I am having problem installing VMware Tools from command line with tar or rpm installer. I am new to command prompt environment.
If you have difficulties in installing VMware Tools, make sure that you have installed gcc and other libraries.
Then try to proceed with VMware Tools installation.
