Install VMWare tools on Centos 7 / 8 and AlmaLinux

VMWare tools are distributed through repositories. Install them with

yum install open-vm-tools

Remember to start and enable it, so it starts automatically after reboot.

systemctl enable vmtoolsd
systemctl start vmtoolsd

For some distributives they might appear in EPEL repositories, so here is small tip:

yum -y install epel-release
