Hey everyone, I'm a linux newbie and need some help. If anyone can lend a hand I would be grateful. I have an XP pro workstation running VMware 4 and I have installed RH9 and have it up and running. I have resolved a few issues already, mainly getting RH to grab a dhcp address and getting all my hardware to work, etc... Im having some problems getting the VMware tools to install though. I need to install the tool set in text mode so I edited /etc/inittab: change id:5:initdefault to id:3:initdefault and I boot in to text mode. Now I run the install package but VMware tools says it needs to build a vmhgfs module but needs a C compiler. It says its unable to find a 'gcc' program on my machine do I want to specify location by hand? Can anyone help me here? Im not sure what to do next. Thanks in advance to any replies.
