Oracle Linux 5U7 on VMware Fusion 4

When installing Oracle Linux 5U7 as a Guest OS on VMWare fusion 4, you will probably run into the "no module ehci-hcd found for kernel 2.6.32-200.13.1.el5uek" during the VMWare Tools installation process. This error is caused by missing usb kernel modules in /lib/modules/2.6.32-200.13.1.el5uek. You can easily solve this by opening a Terminal session, substitute the user by root (su - root) and executing the command below.
cp /lib/modules/2.6.18-274.el5/kernel/drivers/usb/host/?hci-hcd.ko \
/lib/modules/2.6.32-200.13.1.el5uek/kernel/drivers/usb/host
Now you can start the installation of VMWare tools by executing
./vmware-install.pl
