I am running FreeBSD current and barely got vmware
working on it.
Now I have another problem which I cant resolve.
If I close down the vmware program and restart I get an
error that vmnet(1,2,3,0 whatever) device is busy
and can not be used.
using /usr/local/etc/rc.d/vmware.sh stop
and then start again didnt help either.
running ifconfig gave me the following
output (for vmnet2 which i was and intend to use again)
vmnet2: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 192.168.254.1 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.254.255
inet6 fe80::2bd:fff:fe0f:2%vmnet2 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x8
Opened by PID 698
clearly the device is opened by the previous
instance of the program and is not closed.
deleting the devices and recreating them didnt help any
(using devfs which comes stock in current - 5.0)
strangely even after deleting these devices from /dev
ifconfig still lists them !!!!!! may be its because of
devfs ....... but there ought to be someway.
trying to destroy the device using ifconfig gives an error
too which (i believe) it should because destroy is not
for ethernet tunnel device if I am not wrong.
but there are no options to destroy the ethernet tunnel
device in ifconfig .... Should there be?????
I cant think anymore ... would appreciate input from you
guys . Any input. Please dont shy about telling me that
I am going the wrong ally
thanks a bunch
