yum groupinstall ‘Development Tools’
You must restart your X session before any mouse or graphics changes take effect.
You can now run VMware Tools by invoking “/usr/bin/vmware-toolbox-cmd” from the command line or by invoking “/usr/bin/vmware-toolbox” from the command line during an X server session.
To enable advanced X features (e.g., guest resolution fit, drag and drop, and file and text copy/paste), you will need to do one (or more) of the following: 1. Manually start /usr/bin/vmware-user 2. Log out and log back into your desktop session; and, 3. Restart your X session.
