vmware esx 4.1 wget screen
As you know, ESX 4.1 trial (60 days) can use the ESXi key, and still keeps the better BASH and other binaries.
Interestingly you can install things using rpm
Download a RHEL5 (or Centos 5.5) binary rpm installer package (I needed x86_64)
rpm -ivh wget-1.11.1-1rt.x86_64.rpm
wget = connection refused, maybe disable the ESX Linux iptables firewall?
Using rpmfind and wget I can get my necessary and favorite apps: screen
rpm -ivh screen-4.0.3-1.el5_4.1.x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies: libutempter.so.0()(64bit) is needed by screen-4.0.3-1.el5_4.1.x86_64
rpm.pbone.net search reveals the Centos 5.5 package I can wget... rpm -ivh libutempter-1.1.4-4.el5.x86_64.rpm rpm -ivh screen-4.0.3-1.el5_4.1.x86_64.rpm
