    I don't use Fusion but I think the Help file on it will tell all.

    In the Mega-thread posted at the top of this forum there is a specific section telling anyone who bothers to read it where to find instructions for installing VMware Tools - along with many other things that people still ask questions about.

    This page, while outlines how it should be done, does not address the issue that when someone with 10.4 really is installing vmware-tools, he or she encounters erros such as this:

    Code:
    Unable to build the vmXXXX module.
    The page, as of now, is updated in January. Lucid came out in April. So no wonder.

    Anyway, since googling for 10.4 vmware-tools refers to this page, if someone knows how to get vm modules to build under Lynx, just reply to this thread. Thanks!
