VMware Tools error message "could not open /proc/fs/vmblock/dev"

Post#1 by ruriha » 09 May 2018, 08:54

Hello.
I installed "Porteus KDE" in the virtual environment of "VMware Workstation 14 Pro".
When I install VMware Tools on that virtual machine, the display resolution will be full screen.
However, when restarting the virtual machine, the following error message will be displayed.
(Error message)
guest @ porteus: ~ $ sudo /usr/bin/vmware-user
Password:
vmware-user: could not open /proc/fs/vmblock/dev
guest @ porteus: ~ $ uname -r
4.16.3-porteus

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

Hello.
I installed "Porteus Xfce" in the virtual environment of "Oracle VM VirtualBox".
I installed "000-kernel.xzm, 05-devel.xzm, VirtualBox-5.2.10-porteus-v4.0-x86_64-1part.xzm, crippled_sources.xzm".
These are downloaded from "http://ftp.vim.org/ftp/os/Linux/distr/p ... .0/kernel/".
root:/mnt/sr0# sh VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
I was able to install "VirtualBox Guest Additions".
