I am installing VMWare tools on a Ubuntu 11.04 VM under ESXi 4.1

I've used the VM menu 'install tools option' then  extracted the VMWareTools-8.3.2-257589.tar.gz to a dir on desktop called vmtools

Then in terminal ive run vmware-install.pl

I press enter and answer yes to all defaults.

When the tools run and ask for configuration i get stuck at :

Searching for GCC ..
The path "" is not valid path to the gcc binary
Would you like to change it? [yes]

then i'm asked :
What is the location of the gcc program on your machine?

I don't what GCC is, whether its installed or not and what its path would be.

Please Help.

gcc is a compiler, you can run "sudo apt-get install gcc" to install it.

run "dpkg -l | grep anypackagename" to find if you already installed.

run "apt-cache search anypackagename" to find a correct package name; then you can use apt-get to install it.
