Exclamation FC3 Test1 on VMware Workstation 4.5.2, cannot install the vmware tools

hi all,
I followed the vmware help to do, but failed.


Choose VM > Install VMware Tools.

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt
cd /tmp
tar zxf /mnt/vmware-linux-tools.tar.gz
umount /mnt

cd vmware-tools-distrib


And then I seached and found some help like follow:

Fedora Core 2 on VMware Workstation 4.5.2

I downloaded the file and execute the command "patch -Np1 -i

vmware-4.5.2-fedora-core2.patch" ,

But when I try to start X-Window(gnome), it still report a mistake:
"cannot open mouse(No such file or directory)"

How can I do else?

Talking I found the solution!


----- cut /etc/XF86Config -----
Section "Pointer"
Protocol "Microsoft"
Device "/dev/mouse"
----- cut /etc/XF86Config -----


had the same problem. However, here's how I managed to help myself.

cd /dev
rm mouse
ln input/mice mouse
cd /etc/X11
<edit XF86Confg and change device "/dev/mouse" by device "/dev/gpmdata",
Protocol "MouseSystems" (? not sure of this one)>
gpm -R -t ps2

Everything should go ok.
