Update to 4.5.1 build 7568, with lots of cleanup.
- USE_RC_SUBR. Inspired by ports/net/dtcpclient (thanks ume-san).
Since now, loading kernel modules and/or start vmware-guestd can
be tweaked via following rc.conf variables:
* vmware_guestd_enable (default to YES)
* vmware_guest_kmod_enable (default to NO)
vmware-guest_kmod.sh is removed; both are handled by a single
shell script, vmware-guestd.sh.
- Bulid kernel module iff kernel source files are available.
This check is just a static checking of /usr/src/sys/Makefile.
It would be even better that '/usr/src' can be changed to other
place, but I believe that most user puts a source code under /usr/src,
or other places and set a symlink to there. If it hits you badly,
I'm willing to apply your patch to fix(?) it.
- If this ports is used by ports/emulators/vmware-tools4, install XFree86
server modules, vmware_drv.o and vmmouse_drv.o.
The vmware_drv.o is a (virtual) graphic chip driver. I believe that
if you have already installed XFree86 4.3.0, it should be the same
one but compiled on XFree86 184.108.40.206. I've confirmed that it should
work with XFree86 4.3.0 server.
The vmmouse_drv.o is a mouse driver, use it instead of default
mouse driver, mouse_drv.o. It works, but if my test is correct,
it doesn't support Emulate3Buttons. Use with care.
Both drivers are installed to appropriate directory, but renamed
(append '_VMware' to the filename) to avoid any conflicts to other
ports (especially ports/x11/XFree86*).
P.S.: Happy version 4.5.1, ACPI is enabled by default for FreeBSD guest OS.
