installing vmware vsphere CLI v5 on debian 6


aptititude install libxml-libxml-perl  perl-doc  libssl-dev e2fsprogs libarchive-zip-perl libcrypt-ssleay-perl libclass-methodmaker-perl libdata-dump-perl libsoap-lite-perl

echo "ubuntu" > /etc/tmp-release
export httpproxy=
export ftp_proxy=

also a note: When I was running at 256mb the server would run out of memory. I had to bump it up to 1gb ram to install.
