I am trying to install VMwareTools-8.4.6-385536.tar.gz (VMWare Tools) on the following operating system:
Ubuntu 11.04 -
Linux ubuntu 2.6.38-8-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:31:50 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

After starting the installation i am getting the following errors:
What is the directory that contains the init scripts?
