As promised, the kernel modules compiled for the Synology ESXi build
Make sure the vSynology is bootstrapped.
the script will copy the VMWare kernel modules in /opt/lib/modules/ which is 3.2.30 at the moment.
ssh to the DS
wget http://users.skynet.be/synology/i686/sy ... 3.2.30.zip
chmod 777 S37vmware.sh
the output should look like this:
Package module-init-tools (3.5-1) installed in root is up to date.
Nothing to be done
Loading VMware kernel modules...
if you check the loaded modules, the output of the command lsmod | grep vm is:
vmhgfs 52216 0 - Live 0xffffffffa02f5000 (O)
vmxnet 17249 0 - Live 0xffffffffa009f000 (O)
vmsync 3203 0 - Live 0xffffffffa0045000 (O)
vmci 69871 2 vsock,vmhgfs, Live 0xffffffffa0391000 (O)
vmblock 11260 0 - Live 0xffffffffa01b3000 (O)
still some work to do, but the main goal is reached; we can compile and load open-vm-tools in the vSynology.
When I have some time this week, I'll try to package everything into an IPKG, which makes it much easier to install.
