|I did it with DSL 3.1 and VMWare Workstation 5.5.3.|
Ah, that gets a little further - recent DSLs (I was trying the 4.x line) don't like giving any arguments to 'df', which breaks free space detection. By using DSL 3.1 (or circumventing the check in the installer), I could get vmware-install.pl to work. However, vmware-config-tools.pl said there were no preconfigured modules, and I'd have to compile them (back to the original concern that I'd have to install a bunch of other stuff - did you do this, or did Tools install cleanly for you?
I've tried DSL 3.1, 4.2.5, and 4.3 with VMware Fusion 1.x and 2.0b1.
If df is a problem, are you using the busybox df, or do you have the gnu-utils.dsl installed or loaded?
|Code Sample |
|ls -halF `which df`|
Anyway, if you said that the tools/headers are only needed for compiling, start dsl from cd, install all the needed tools/headers, compile with --prefix=/some/directory/or/drive/that/won't/be/erased/on/reboot (Flash, usb, or hd) then use the vm-tools from there, or package them for dsl/uci/unc, without needing the other tools
