28 Jan 11 OpenSource VMWare tools on Debian

I was having all kinds of issues trying to install the regular VMware tools on Debian. It was asking for gcc and when I gave it a patch for gcc next it was telling me that I have the newer version of gcc which will not work well blah blah blah. So instead after some research I found out that I can install the Open Source version of VM Tools. It was pretty easy and works great on my Debian install

apt-get install open-vm-source
module-assistant prepare open-vm
module-assistant auto-install open-vm
