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

This must be due to a difference between the rc.d and openrc.

Code: Select all

sudo service vmware-kmod start
[: =: unexpected operator
Loading  kernel module:  * Failed

Code: Select all

sudo service vmware-guestd restart
 * Stopping vmware_guestd ...
 * Failed to stop vmware_guestd                                                                                                                                                         [ !! ]
 * ERROR: vmware-guestd failed to stop
/var/log/messages doesn't provide any additional debug output.
