I have been trying to get vmware tools support successfully configured and started in my Ubuntu 11.04 guest. I am running a current version of vmware workstation on Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate with an Ubuntu 11.04 guest install. This VM was created using the easyinstall option in vmware workstation.
I have manually reinstalled and reconfigured vmware tools with the follwoing results.
last bit of relevant output following the vmware-config-tools.pl execution.
Creating a new initrd boot image for the kernel. update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.38-8-generic initctl: Job failed to start Unable to start services for VMware Tools

I am hoping someone has some ideas.. Thanks, Pat
