When trying to install VMware Tools in the latest Free-BSD the following message appears in the Terminal:
"This configuration program is to be executed in a virtual machine. Execution aborted. Bad system call (core dumped)"
Seen as my BSD installation "is" in a Virtual Machine where does one go from here?
Thanks for your reply. Sorry I haven't been in touch sooner, but the website seems to have been down for maintainance over the weekend.
The version of FreeBSD I'm installing is the latest download, 7.0. I followed the instructions in the manual, everything went ok right until the last moment and that's when the error message appeared. I've installed VMware Tools in an earlier release of FreeBSD without any problems; so, I really can't understand what's going wrong in this instance.
According to the latest GuestOS_guide.pdf , FreeBSD 7.0 is not supported by any VMware virtualization platform (Server, Workstation, Player, ESX/VI).
So there might be no VMware Tools for it.
