    OpenSolaris 2009.6 - Unable to install VMware Tools

    Night81cal Lurker

       

      Hi,

       

       

      Have problems during installation of VMware Tools under OpenSolaris 2009.6:

       

       

       

       

       

      Detected X.org version 7.4.3.

       

      Unable to copy the source file

      /usr/lib/vmware-tools/configurator/XOrg/7.4/vmware_drv.so to the destination

      file /usr/X11/lib/modules/drivers/vmware_drv.so.

       

      Execution aborted.

       

      root@MacBook_Solaris:/tmp/vmware-tools-distrib#

      root@MacBook_Solaris:/tmp/vmware-tools-distrib# cd /usr/lib/vmware-tools/configurator/XOrg/

      root@MacBook_Solaris:/usr/lib/vmware-tools/configurator/XOrg# ls -ltr

      total 6

      drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4 2009-06-01 12:28 6.8.x

      drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4 2009-06-01 12:28 7.0

      drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4 2009-06-01 12:28 7.1

      drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4 2009-06-01 12:28 7.1_64

      root@MacBook_Solaris:/usr/lib/vmware-tools/configurator/XOrg#

       

       

      I also attached a screenshot.

       

       

      As you can see the directory "/usr/lib/vmware-tools/configurator/XOrg/7.4" is missing (probably because the X.Org version is too new).

       

       

      Is there a more current version of VMware Tools which includes the support for XOrg 7.4 version?
