Description Tomoyuki Okazaki 2007-12-12 06:30:01 UTC
I'm using vmware 5.5.5 for windows (and vmware-server 1.0.4 for linux) with 8-current guest OS.
And I can't install vmware-tools for 8-current guest.
('Bad system call' and core dumps)

Fix: Use 6.0 binaries for 6.0-RELEASE or later.
I made a patch for it, but can't test 64bit-guests.
Please check it.

Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: On vmware 5.5.5, just cd /usr/ports/emulators/vmware-guestd5; make install
