Instalar VMware Tools en Linux sin entrono grafico

Una vez que tenemos el sistema operativo sin entorno grafico, accedemos a el y seguimos los siguientes pasos:
1 On the host, select VM > Install VMware Tools.

If an earlier version of VMware Tools is installed, the menu item is Update VMware Tools. If the current version is installed, the menu item is Reinstall VMware Tools.

2 On the guest, log in as root.

3 If your Linux distribution does not automatically mount CD-ROMs, mount the VMware Tools virtual CD-ROM image.
  a- If necessary, create the /mnt/cdrom directory:
      mkdir /mnt/cdrom
  b- Mount the CD-ROM drive.

Some Linux distributions use different device names or organize the /dev directory differently. If your CD-ROM drive is not /dev/cdrom or if the mount point for a CD-ROM is not /mnt/cdrom, modify the command to reflect the conventions used by your distribution.
     mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

4 Change to a working directory (for example, /tmp):

     cd /tmp

5 If a previous installation exists, delete the previous vmware-tools-distrib directory.
The location of this directory depends on where you placed it during the previous installation. Often it is placed in /tmp/vmware-tools-distrib.

6 Uncompress the installer:

    tar zxpf /mnt/cdrom/VMwareTools--.tar.gz

The value is the product version number and is the build number of the product release.

7 If necessary, unmount the CD-ROM image.
If your Linux distribution automatically mounted the CD-ROM, you do not need to unmount the image.
   umount /dev/cdrom

8 Run the VMware Tools installer.
       cd vmware-tools-distrib

Respond to the questions the command-line wizard displays on the screen. Press Enter to accept the default value. The configuration file, vmware-config-tools.pl, runs after the installer file finishes running.

9 If you are updating VMware Tools, reboot the virtual machine or manually reload the pvscsi, vmxnet, and vmxnet3 Linux kernel modules.
If you reload the modules, networking on the virtual machine is interrupted.

10 Enter the following commands to restore the network:
     /etc/init.d/network stop
        rmmod vmxnet
        modprobe vmxnet
     /etc/init.d/network start
