Installing VMware Tools in Fedora Core 5

# Install software called by VMware Tools
yum install gcc

# Install kernel header files
yum install kernel-devel

# Check it matches the running kernel
uname -r             # running kernel
rpm -q kernel-devel  # installed kernel headers
# It the two versions do not match, run
yum -y upgrade kernel kernel-devel
# then reboot (but only if they did not match).

# Find out where the kernel headers are
echo /usr/src/kernels/$(uname -r)-$(uname -p)/include
# You need this later.

# If you already have VMwareTools-5.5.1-19175.tar.gz on disk, SKIP THIS STEP!
# Download VMware-workstation-5.5.1-19175.tar.gz from vmware.com
# Extract the VMware Tools iso from it
tar --strip-components=3 -zxvf VMware-workstation-5.5.1-19175.tar.gz 
 vmware-distrib/lib/isoimages/linux.iso
# Create a temporary mount point
mkdir /mnt/vmtools-temp
# Mount the image
mount -o loop linux.iso /mnt/vmtools-temp
# Copy VMware Tools from the mount
cp /mnt/vmtools-temp/VMwareTools-5.5.1-19175.tar.gz /tmp/
# Unmount the image and tidy up
umount /mnt/vmtools-temp
rmdir /mnt/vmtools-temp
rm linux.iso

# Unpack VMware Tools to a temporary directory
cd /tmp/
tar zxvf VMwareTools-5.5.1-19175.tar.gz
cd /tmp/vmware-tools-distrib/
./vmware-install.pl

减慢Windows运行速度的软件

这则消息来自互联网,What Slows Windows Down?
排行前十位:
1位:Norton Internet Security 2006(57.78%)

2位:Fonts 1000個(40.00%)

3位:Kaspersky Internet Security(14.22%)

4位:Yahoo Instant Messenger 8.0(14.22%)

5位:AOL Instant Messenger 1.5 Preview(13.78%)

6位:McAfee SecurityCentre(11.56%)

9位:VMWare Workstation5.5.1-19(11.11%)

10位:Microsoft Visual Studio2005 Pro.(10.22%)

 

由此可见,杀毒软件比较狠! 三大杀毒软件Norton、Kaspersky跟McAfee分列1、3、6位。

另一不容忽视的是排行第二的Fonts,1000字体就会相对减慢Windows的运行速度约40%,看样子还是把不常用的字体删了吧!
