Unhappy Re: Fedora 16 - VMware tools

You've got further than I did. I've just installed VMware on a Mac (OS-X 10.6) and when I select "install VMware tools" the CD icon goes briefly to black and then back to grey. I tried downloading the tools myself from the VMware website and loading the .iso file into the CD drive directly, but that file seems to date from 2008 and says it needs a GCC compiler which it can't find (though I think it's supposed to be included in Fedora 16; the GCC site only seems to have sources, which aren't much use without a compiler).

I'm only doing all this so I can run Xilinx's development environment on the Mac. I thought Windows was bad, but this is just silly.
