Open-vm-tools Service start/stop Scripts not Working

This must be due to a difference between the rc.d and openrc. sudo service vmware-kmod start [: =: unexpected operator Loading kernel module: * Failed sudo service vmware-guestd restart * Stopping vmware_guestd ... * Failed to stop vmware_guestd [ !! ] * ERROR: vmware-guestd failed to stop /var/log/...

Transition from FreeBSD to TrueOS, why should I use GhostBSD?

This isn't an directed towards TrueOS itself (I haven't used it enough to be able to have any opinion it) or negative criticism towards the decision to switch from FreeBSD as a base. More so it's some thoughts and observations. I'm happy to see that the overall look and feel of GhostBSD remains unch...

Re: Clipboard Sharing, Autosize, and Smooth Mouse in VMware

I've simplified the instructions for 10.3. Anyone that still needs the older ones can find them below: pkg install -y open-vm-tools xf86-video-vmware xf86-input-vmmouse Edit the xorg.conf file. Note: GhostBSD 10.1 does not include one by default and one will need to be generated and placed in /usr/l...

Re: Clipboard Sharing, Autosize, and Smooth Mouse in VMware

Looks like the problems with PCDM, package repositories, and networking are fixed in Alpha 2. I've updated the instructions to use packages instead of building from ports.

Re: Enable Clipboard Sharing and Autosize in VMware

Unfortunately the 10.1 alpha 1 has an issue where PCDM is not working. You will need to disable it via /etc/rc.conf and manually issue a 'startx' command. Also, the installer fails to write a network configuration to rc.conf that will prevent you from downloading anything. A quick dhclient em0 Will ...

Clipboard Sharing, Autosize, and Smooth Mouse in VMware

To enable clipboard sharing, auto-resize, and get a smoother mouse in a VMWare guest you will need to use the emulators/open-vm-tools package. These steps are specifically for GhostBSD 10.3, 11.1, and 18.10. For more detailed and generalized steps see http://www.unibia.com/unibianet/freebsd/open-vm-...

Upgrading to 10.1 not possible

I tried upgrading to 10.1-RELEASE using

Code: Select all

freebsd-update upgrade -r 10.1-RELEASE
with no success. I was able to rollback to return to a functional system. I imagine that the kernel has some customizations?
