How can install official vmtools (vmware)


#1

I want to use vmxnet3, I think I can’t use it if vmtools isn’t installed.
vmtools needs the kernel headers, and some build tools.
How can I get those?


#2

Vyos helium is supposed to drivers for vmxnet3, so it should just work.


#3

open-vm-tools is supported by VMware:
