Installing VMWare Tools on Fedora Core 10

I have been struggling to get VMWare Tools to properly install on Fedora Core 10 for
a few weeks. My initial searches had left me with little in the way of resolution.
I then found some excellent (link at the end of the posting)  notes that put
me on the right path.

Become SU

yum install make gcc kernel-devel

Say Yes to the prompt

uname -r

rpm -q kernel-devel

Compare the output of uname and the RPM info... if they don't match then run the YUM
upgrade step (next)

yum -y upgrade kernel kernel-devel

The next step is needed or your xwindows config may not work.

nano /etc/X11.xorg.conf

Section "Monitor"

Identifier "vmware"


Save it (write out... then exit)

Now run the VMWare Tools install from the command line.
