PC-BSD 8.2 on VMware Player
Hello. This is my first try in BSD operating systems. I'm running PC-BSD in vmware player, version 3.1.4 on windows.
I already installed (via ports) the X11 drivers for mouse and graphics, and they seem to work. But I cannot manage to install vmtools on guest. I need this to automatically resize the guest desktop resolution to the size of vmware window.
I tried various approaches: installing the tools bundled with vmplayer, installing them from from ports, installing open-vm-tools from ports, re-trying this after updating ports, installing open-vm-tools from packages, and manually recompiling open-vm-tools downloaded from their website.
Nothing really worked with various error messages, and I broke the system several times because of dependency hell.
Have anyone managed to install this actually?
Now I *could* live without it but KDE 4 seems to forget the desired resolution with every login, botting up in 800x600.
The whole KDE4 with all its bloat and bugs is a disappointment to me. I tried installing GNOME 2 (which broke some dependencies in ports by the way), but it was so... generic. No customization for PC-BSD at all.
