I have installed a new RPM-based Linux virtual machine and now I want to install Parallels Tools in it.
Step By Step Instructions
Important: Before installing Parallels Tools we recommend to update your Linux virtual machine to the latest kernel version and reboot the virtual machine.
Go to Terminal in Fedora virtual machine and execute the following command:
sudo dnf install gcc kernel-devel-$(uname -r) kernel-headers-$(uname -r) make checkpolicy selinux-policy-devel
Make sure the virtual DVD drive of your Linux virtual machine is empty by executing the following command:
sudo eject /dev/sr0
From the top menu bar go to the Actions menu -> (Re)Install Parallels Tools.
Click Continue to proceed
Then execute the following commands to correctly mount the Parallels Tools image and run the installation:
sudo mkdir /media/cdrom sudo mount -o exec /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom cd /media/cdrom sudo ./install
- Proceed with Parallels Tools installation. Reboot when finished.
