I've just CVSupped to -CURRENT in an attempt to learn more about FreeBSD
development in general.

  However, vmware3 no longer works.  I get errors about vmnet1 not
existing, yet I have the appropriate entries in /compat/linux/dev.
However, I /do/ have a vmnet4097 when I run ifconfig.

  I notice that ls -ld /compat/linux/dev/vmnet1 shows:

crw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  149, 0x00800001 Mar  5 12:49 /compat/linux/dev/vmnet1

while ls -ld /dev/vmnet1 shows:

crw-------  1 root  wheel  226, 0x00100001 Mar  5 12:01 /dev/vmnet1

  I searched on the mailing lists and eventually found an old PR
(http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=48608) that seems as though
it might be relevant.

  Any suggestions?  Or am I being optimistic in thinking vmware3 will
run on -CURRENT?


I rebuilt all of the necessary packages after the upgrade.
