  1. the modified kernel is not the stock kernel to which the synology kmodules are compiled. the modules which are not working should be recompiled
  2. Tomek, as stated, there some more work to do. I'm extending the script and testing all functions. Meanwhile if you start the VMWare tools daemon with the following command, it will show the VMWare tools as installed and running. /opt/bin/vmtoolsd --background /var/run/vmtoolsd.pid /didi
  3. wenlez, the kmodules and IPKG packages works on both ESXi and Workstation9
  4. 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 cd /opt/tmp wget http://users.skynet.be/synology/i686/sy ... 3.2.30.zip unzip syno_vmware_kernel_mod_x86_64_3.2.30.zip cd syno_vmware_kernel_mod_x86_64_3.2.30/ chmod 777 S37vmware.sh ./S37vmware.sh start the output should look like this: Package module-init-tools (3.5-1) installed in root is up to date. Nothing to be done Successfully terminated. Loading VMware kernel modules... vmblock.ko: success vmci.ko: success vmsync.ko: success vmxnet.ko: success vmhgfs.ko: success vsock.ko: success 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. Cheers
  5. lol, I've compiled the open-vm-tools for i686 architecture here: ipkg install http://users.skynet.be/synology/i686/op ... 1_i686.ipk Later today I'll compile the kernel modules for the x86_64 architecture and post the link here.
  6. Also would like to see how you did it. Thanks for sharing!
  7. Hi jukolaut, can you upload the modified sources? I'm also busy getting open-vm-tools compiled and packaged through the IPKG Optware repository. Thanks!
