We just converted a red hat linux release 7.1sbe (seawolf) from a physical box to a virtual box, and currently the nic drivers appear not to be working

lspci shows the following
00:11.0 Ethernet controller: VMware Inc: Unknown device 0720 (rev 10)

I tried installing vmware tools for linux however that is not working. Any suggestions?

You will need to install GCC and the kernel sources on your Linux guest in order to build the correct drivers for your system.

Besides GCC and kernel sources, you will also need the "make" package (as shown in your screenshot), and in my experience the "binutils" package is also helpful. You can get those through the add/remove software in the UI.

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

What I ended up going to solve the problem was increasing the disk space on my distro, and then preforming an upgrade to 9.1 redhat and then the vmware tools installed without any issues.
