I am running vmware3 without issue under both a patched
4.9-RELEASE and 5.2.1-RELEASE. You have not mentioned
two items which are needed for it to work properly so I'll
ask about them:
Have you set sysctl kern.ipc.shm_allow_removed 1 ?
Have you either done a kldload aio ?
I've got that second compiled into my kernel with a line
options VFS_AIO #Needed for vmware3
I noticed your kernel config doesn't have this line.
The sysctl is set in /etc/sysctl.conf at boot for me.
Are you missing either or both of the above? That could
be your problem...
