I installed the VM Tools config. Is there anything I need to do to get that to work, or is it enough to simply open the config and have Configure.app install it?


It's enough to install it with Configure.app. Just make sure it is listed in the "Other devices" section. There is also some configuration dialogue for it letting you set the sync intervall and forcing an instant sync.


Hmm, something must not be right on my system. See these pics:









These screenshots are from my OS4.2 box, but the same thing happens on NS3.3 Any ideas about this? Thanks!

With these two steps you only installed the driver into the system driver directory. Now you need to add it as active driver to the system configuration.

For that go to the "Other Devices" section, click "Add...", then change the filter to "Show All Installed Drivers" as there is no detectable hardware associated with the driver, scroll down to "VMWare Toolbox (v1.0)" select that entry and click "Add" in the dialogue. Now the driver should be listed among those other drivers.

Finally click "Done" and save the new configuration. With the next reboot the driver should be installed. You can test this by entering "kl_util -s" in a terminal running as root. VMTools should be listed there together with VMXNet and VMMouse Smile

haha... can you tell that this is my first non-black NeXT experience? Smile

I used NeXTSTEP from v2.1 to 3.3 on my black NeXT, and VMware Fusion is my first experience with NS/OS on Intel. Thanks so much for all the help.

Edit - I have it configured now on OS. Will do NS late. Thanks so much.
