APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Desktop 11 for Mac Standard Edition
  • Parallels Desktop 10 for Mac Standard Edition
  • Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac Standard Edition

Symptoms

I have installed new RPM-based Linux virtual machine and now I want to install Parallels Tools in it.

Resolution

Important: Before installing Parallels Tools we recommend to update your Linux virtual machine to the latest kernel version and reboot the virtual machine.

  1. Go to Terminal in Fedora virtual machine and execute the following commands one by one:

    su
    

    (enter root password)

    dnf install gcc kernel-devel-$(uname -r) kernel-headers-$(uname -r) make
    

    Important: For Fedora and Redhat Linux we also recommend to install checkpolicy and selinux-policy-devel.

    dnf install checkpolicy selinux-policy-devel gcc kernel-devel-$(uname -r) kernel-headers-$(uname -r) make
    
  2. Make sure the virtual DVD drive of your Linux virtual machine is empty:

    eject /dev/sr0
    
  3. Go to the Actions menu (on OS X menubar) -> (Re)Install Parallels Tools...

  4. Click YES to proceed

  5. Execute in Terminal:

    mkdir /media/cdrom
    
    mount -o exec /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom
    
    cd /media/cdrom
    
    ./install
    
  6. Proceed with Parallels Tools installation. Reboot when finished.
