ed/x/ubuntu and vmware tools & vmware toolbox

If you have recently upgraded to the latest versions of ed/x/ubuntu (10.x) and the latest version of vmware player (3.1.1) you may experience the “good old” vmware tools & vmware toolbox “missing make”, “missing gcc” or “missing kernel headers” errors !

These can normally be fixed by running

# aptitude install bin-utils

# aptitude install linux-headers-generic

before re-running

# vmware-tools-distrib/vmware-install.pl

and

# vmware-config-tools.pl
