At this moment i am writing a large update, but for the time being:
+
I had to do a few additional things while installing on VMWare player wrt the Official VMWare tools. The kernel version was 3.12 and vmware player was 6.0.1.
 +
To highlight the points:
 +
* I did not get the tools ISO with my VMware player installation and had to source it from one of the vmware websites.
 +
* The source for the vmci module had to be replaced with one which I found from the vmware forums in the tools .
 +
* A patch had to be applied vmhgfs module source
 +
If someone could let me know if any of this info would be qualify to go into the wiki then I can add them in. It might help someone trying to install on VMWare player.

Additional info while installing on VMWare player 6.0.1

I had to do a few additional things while installing on VMWare player wrt the Official VMWare tools. The kernel version was 3.12 and vmware player was 6.0.1. To highlight the points:

  • I did not get the tools ISO with my VMware player installation and had to source it from one of the vmware websites.
  • The source for the vmci module had to be replaced with one which I found from the vmware forums in the tools .
  • A patch had to be applied vmhgfs module source

If someone could let me know if any of this info would be qualify to go into the wiki then I can add them in. It might help someone trying to install on VMWare player. Nsmathew (talk) 07:31, 29 November 2013 (UTC) nsmathew

vsock and vmw_vsock_vmci_transport drivers

What is the purpose of those drivers and when are they needed?

According to this Ubuntu manual page it looks like they probably get loaded automatically anyway if needed: vmsock
