Hi Guys,

It is surprised that VMware-tools gives 4 options only for resolutin after
I install VMware-tools for CentOS release 5.10 (Final), a guest OS running
with VMware player 6.0.1 build-1379776. The kernal is 2.6.18-371.4.1.el5
x86_64 x86_64. The host system is win7 64bit OS. The hardware is Thinkpad
T440S with a FHD display, 1920 X 1080. The following is what I get when I
run vmware-config-tools.pl. The VMware-tools is
VMwareTools-9.6.1-1378637.tar.gz. I think that is the latest version.

choose one of the following display sizes that X will start with:

[1]  640x480
[2]  800x600
[3]  1024x768
[4]< 1280x800
Please enter a number between 1 and 4:

[4] 4

Obviously it does not contain the resolution I need. The information I get
with getinfo.sh has one line "VGA compatible controller [0300]: VMware SVGA
II Adapter [15ad:0405]"

VMware-tools worked well when I installed CentOS 5.5 for my virtual
machine. What's wrong? Would you please help me? Thank you.

Best Regards,
