I apologize in advance if the solution is posted somewhere, I have been working on this for several days and have been unable to find a solution through my searches.
My host machine OS is WIN 7, I am currently using VMware Workstation 7.1.2 and have created a virtual machine with Sabayon 5.4 KDE.
I had some issues installing the VMware tools because I could not get past the question asking for the location of the C headers and found this tutorial: http://www.svendens.com/open-source/vmware-tools-in-sabayon-linux-4-2-kde/
I followed the instructions and when I got to:
Now cd to the directory /usr/portage/sys-kernel/linux-headers and type ls to see a list of what’s in there.
Note the highest available number for your kernel (mine today is 2.6.30-r1).
Now execute the following command to get the linux-headers so you can compile the vmware-modules later on: emerge -va =sys-kernel/linux-headers-2.6.30-r1
I used the following command: emerge -va =sys-kernel/linux-headers-2.6.35
Then I installed the tools by using the command: equo install --ask open-vm-tools
I went with all the defaults and at the end it listed some vmware files asking what to do with them...I chose to automerge them all.
Now when I boot up Sabayon, it allows the mouse to switch back and forth but the resolution has not adjusted to my host resolution. I verified that the tools are installed by going to VM on my VMware menu bar and "Reinstall VMware tools is there rather than "Install VMware tools".
Is there any other configurations that need to be done in order to get Sabayon to fit properly within my VMware window?
Thank you in advance for helping me out
