Re: VMWare tools on Fedora Core 5

Hi Mike, thanx a lot for your comments,

Now I changed my monitor setting so a I can use a
resolution of 1024 x 768 which is what my host system
can give.  But I discovered a little bug in
system-config-display.  Whenever I try to change the
Video Card setting in s-c-d, I don't get any window,
but got this in console (pushing the "Configure"
button in s-c-d):

Traceback (most recent call last):
line 345, in configure_videocard
line 63, in __init__
TypeError: iter should be a GtkTreeIter

May be I should search in redhat's bugzilla and see if
it have been reported.

Do you know something about this problem?

Thanx to all of you, I now can use a decent resolution
without installing the VMWare tools.

However, in Windows you can use your mouse without any
hassle since VMWare grabs the input any time the
window gets the focus, with linux you have to click
(or Ctrl + G) and Ctrl + Alt to grab/release the focus
which is a little annoying.
