DKMS

Is the section about using DKMS to compile the kernel modules still valid? There is open-vm-tools-dkms in the community repository which seems to be the same thing. I don't know how to use DKMS yet so it would be nice if someone with experience on using DKMS could update the corresponding section. --BertiBoeller (talk) 11:33, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

Configuration

This section needs a much better explanation, especially considering that those long perl commands don't even work.
