As niche posts go, I think this one may take the cake since it is about my experience installing Parallel 7's tools in a Chakra Linux guest (of the venerable Arch family)

Let me begin with pointing out that there are no Parallel Tools for Arch/Chakra but you can still make this work.


What you need

    • Parallels 7
    • Chakra Linux
    • Kernel 3.2

 

Let's do this

1. On your host, select [cfrbc]Install Parallel Tools[/cfrbc]

2. Shell time! You may first need to mount Parallel Tools manually.

sumount /dev/cdrom /mnt


3. Let's make a copy of the tools and patch it for kernel 3.2.

mkdir -p ~/Tmp/PT
cd ~/Tmp/PT
cp -r /mnt/* .
cd kmods
tar zxvf prl_mod.tar.gz
vi prl_eth/pvmnet/pvmnet.c
Replace .ndo_set_multicast_list with .ndo_set_rx_mode
tar zcvf prl_mod.tar.gz prl_eth prl_fs prl_fs_freeze prl_pv prl_tg dkms.conf Makefile.kmods


4. And finally, let's run the installer (cross your fingers!)

cd ..
export def_sysconfdir=/etc/rc.d
./install

You may or may not have to set correct the resolution in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Personally I added "1920x1080" logged out, logged back in...it just worked.

Note that all the host's shares can be found in /media/psf/
