I just installed a brand new VM with 2.0-RC1 (i386) built on Thu Mar 17 07:55:22 EDT 2011 and added open-VM-tools :
... (extracting)Loading package configuration... done.
Configuring package components...
Additional files... done.
Loading package instructions...
Writing configuration... done.
Installation completed. Please check to make sure that the package is configured from the respective menu then start the package.
The old version was installing far more dependancies (python26, pear,...) is this OK ?
On the console i see the message "VMware memory control driver initialized"
but in the system logs i see this "root: /usr/local/etc/rc.d/vmware-guestd.sh: WARNING: failed to start vmware_guestd"
In the vsphere client, vmware tools are marked "not installed"
edit : if i try a /usr/local/etc/rc.d/vmware-guestd.sh start from the console it fails :
/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libgmodule-2.0.so.0" not found, required by "vmtoolsd"
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/vmware-guestd.sh: WARNING: failed to start vmware_guestd
edit2 : I tried to install glib20 (which I think brings libgmodule-2.0.so.0) but it needs python26, perl and pcre
so I installed them but I ran into another problem :
pkg_add: warning: package 'glib-2.24.1_1' requires 'pkg-config-0.23_1', but 'pkg-config-0.25_1' is installed
pkg_add: warning: package 'glib-2.24.1_1' requires 'gettext-0.18_1', but 'gettext-0.18.1.1' is installed
