Porteus at VMWare and shared folder

Post#1 by glestwid » 02 May 2019, 15:28

Hi,

I am running a Porteus VM on VMWare installed on my Windows 10 host. How can I have access to VMWare shared folders from Porteus? What should I install at the guest OS and probably at the host?

you may need open-vm-tools (for vmware-hgfsclient) (+ deps: libmspack libdnet) (try usm)
