Description fumifumi 2010-11-16 10:50:08 UTC
Helpful PR ports/151872 has fixed a issue of pkg-config,
however it does not contain the patch for the main symptom of PR ports/150913.
I have recreated a simple patch for the new 313025 version.

vmware-user-suid-wrapper unloads vmblock.ko successfully,
then fails to reload it, since kernel modules are not installed
on the default path of kldload by this port, politely.
Clipboard sharing does not work.

Fix: A patch is attached.
Changing kern.module_path with root privilege may also work,
but it is a global setting.

Thank you for everything,

Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: > sudo chmod u=xs,go=x /usr/local/bin/vmware-user-suid-wrapper

> kldstat -m vmblock
Id Refs Name
458 1 vmblock

> /usr/local/bin/vmware-user-suid-wrapper
vmware-user: failed to load vmblock: No such file or directory
vmware-user: failed to start vmblock

> kldstat -m vmblock
kldstat: can't find module vmblock: No such file or directory.
