(Not sure if top-posting is frowned on here, but I'll follow the convention used by other lists I subscribe to, and continue this here.) Mine has been a long, strange trip in installing and making VMware Tools work on FBSD 7.0. My latest go has me installing /usr/ports/emulators/vmware-guestd6/, then the VMware-supplied tools. I've already mentioned that I had to symlink libc.so.6 to get the VMware version to run. I also had to symlink /lib/libm.so.4 to /lib/libm.so.5 in order to get vmware-toolbox to work. I've followed a couple of posts in other forums (or fora, if you prefer :-) ) that suggest using the e1000 NIC driver (e.g. communities.vmware.com/message/352504), but it fails. This is the last piece I need to make work. Suggestions? Thanks.
