As far as I know, you can build them, you just need devel series installed.
At least in vmware workstation you do
VM->Install Guest Additions
and mount the virtual cdrom

mount /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom
tar xvf /mnt/cdrom/VMware*
cd vmware-tools-distrib
./vmware-install.pl

Searching for a valid kernel header path...
The path "" is not a valid path to the 2.6.39.4-smp kernel headers.
Would you like to change it? [yes]

Enter the path to the kernel header files for the 2.6.39.4-smp kernel? /usr/include

The path "/usr/include" is not a valid path to the 2.6.39.4-smp kernel headers.

Would you like to change it? [yes]

=>

root@xenya:~/vmware-tools-distrib# slapt-get --search header
attr-2.4.45-x86_64-1 [inst=yes]: attr (tools for using extended attributes on filesystems)
cryptsetup-1.2.0-x86_64-1 [inst=yes]: cryptsetup (utility for setting up encrypted filesystems)
glibc-2.14.1-x86_64-1sms [inst=yes]: glibc (GNU C libraries)
iptables-1.4.11.1-x86_64-1sms [inst=yes]: iptables (IP packet filter administration)
kernel-headers-2.6.39.4_smp-x86-1sms [inst=yes]: kernel-headers (Linux kernel include files)
lesstif-0.95.2-x86_64-1 [inst=yes]: lesstif (a free replacement for OSF/Motif(R))
spamassassin-3.3.2-x86_64-1sms [inst=yes]: SpamAssassin
swig-1.3.38-x86_64-2 [inst=no]: swig (Simplified Wrapper and Interface Generator)


what is the problem? Sad

You can try kernel modules, I created, I hope you are running 32bit kernel.
http://sms.it-ccs.com/isos/SMS.Native.CD/extra/vmware/vmware_kernel_modules-8.6-i486-1sms.txz

Code:
lib/modules/2.6.39.4-smp/misc/misc/vmsync.ko
lib/modules/2.6.39.4-smp/misc/misc/vmci.ko
lib/modules/2.6.39.4-smp/misc/misc/vsock.ko
lib/modules/2.6.39.4-smp/misc/misc/vmhgfs.ko
lib/modules/2.6.39.4-smp/misc/misc/vmxnet.ko
lib/modules/2.6.39.4-smp/misc/misc/vmblock.ko


And here are the patched files and needed headers to build from source.
http://sms.it-ccs.com/isos/SMS.Native.CD/extra/vmware/vmware-tools_patched-8.6-noarch-1sms.txz

Thanks, but unfortunately I use x64. I tried also to the proposed site, but unfortunately it is later stuck during installation.

Ignore backtrack site, is old...
Have you used patched sources to compile yours?

I'll compile x64 modules to check.

Here are the x86_64 kernel modules to check
http://sms.it-ccs.com/isos/SMS.Native.CD/extra/vmware/vmware_kernel_modules-8.6-x86_64-1sms.txz

and also I repack sources ( i had forgot to make clean and failed on 64bit)

You should be able to install them now.

I receive this error:

You must restart your X session before any mouse or graphics changes take

You can now run VMware Tools by invoking "/usr/bin/vmware-toolbox-cmd" from the
command line or by invoking "/usr/bin/vmware-toolbox" from the command line
during an X server session.

To enable advanced X features (e.g., guest resolution fit, drag and drop, and
file and text copy/paste), you will need to do one (or more) of the following:
1. Manually start /usr/bin/vmware-user
2. Log out and log back into your desktop session; and,
3. Restart your X session.

Enjoy,

Did you compile from source or did you use ready kernel modules?
I built modules, from native installation and not vmware machine, and I don't know if that is causing problems.

If you didn't compile from source, just replace sources and give it a try, just run vmware-config-tools.pl once you replace sources and vmware-config-tools.pl

re download if you haven't already.

Other modules work, or it's a vmwgfx issue only?
