If the VMWare tools require perl, you can install perl with yum install perl

Here is how you do it (ignore #):

Code: Select all

yum install perl -y

Code: Select all

# mount /dev/cdrom /mnt

Code: Select all

# cp -v /mnt/VMwareTools-* /tmp

Code: Select all

# cd /tmp

Code: Select all

# tar -xzvf VMwareTools-*

Code: Select all

# cd vmware-tools-distrib

Code: Select all

# ./vmware-install.pl -d

Code: Select all

#  vmware-config-tools.pl

Code: Select all

# cd ..
Clean up:

Code: Select all

# yes | rm -Rf vmware-tools-distri

Code: Select all

# yes | rm VMwareTools-*
Hope this helps. :D :D :D
