vmware-tools install

Has anyone successfully installed vmware-tools on arch? im curious if just symlinking /etc/rc.{multi,single} to /etc/rc.0-6 is sufficient to get passed that question in the script?

ah ok,

ln -s rc.d/ rc6.d
ln -s rc.d/ rc5.d
ln -s rc.d/ rc4.d
ln -s rc.d/ rc3.d
ln -s rc.d/ rc2.d
ln -s rc.d/ rc1.d
ln -s rc.d/ rc0.d 

next problem i run into is it fails to stop vmware tools services which has never been run in the first place : any ideas?

more info this is vmware workstation 5.5.1 build-19175, arch 7.1 xorg7 kde3.5 ive checked other postings here nothing related to what im seeing when trying to run vmware-config-tools

root@myhost dev]#

sh: /etc/vmware-tools: is a directory
Making sure services for VMware Tools are stopped.

Re: vmware-tools install

check out the packagebuild in AUR

It sets up those folders and other stuff for vmware workstation 5.5 and may help you.

If Archlinux is running as a vmware guest system, did you install X ?

Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.

Re: vmware-tools install

You can just follow the vmware wiki, it's advices work for vmware-tools as well.
Create /etc/rc.d/vmware.d/rc0.d - rc6.d
