let me start by saying i haven't built vmware in awhile -- not since the
v2 port came to be under 4.x. i've upgraded my workstation to 5.1
(finally) and again have a need for vmware. so i found the vmware3 port.
none of the distro sites worked... at least not for the PORTVERSION
3.2.1-2237. i found 3.2.1-2242 on vmware.com. so i downloaded that, made
a quick edit to Makefile, and the install seemed to work.
vmware3-3.2.1-2242_1 A virtual machine emulator - a full PC in a window
my question... has the Makefile simply not been updated because the
MAINTAINER is busy (understandable, i'm not bitching ;), or do the
required patches/etc. not cleanly appliy to newer 3.0 builds?
i'm working on the config now. the one issue i see is that the wizard
doesn't work. it core dumps.
Sep 29 15:21:42 mojo kernel: pid 981 (bash), uid 1001: exited on signal 11
that appears each time i attempt file -> wizard. no biggie, i've created
a config manually (file -> new), which seems to work... but am now trying
to workaround license issues (i believe the wizard walks you through
creating a license file, and creating it manually like i did under 2.0
isn't working as easily as i remembered).
so i guess my question is... should i continue trying to get the newer
3.2.1-2242 working, or are there known issues/reasons i should try to
track down the older 3.2.1-2237? if the latter, does anyone know of a
working distro site for 3.2.1-2237?
