Default Re: Solaris10 x86 using VMWare?

oh...just remembered and forgot to post in my comments above. You cannot install vmware tools via the VM->Install VMware Tools... menu. It won't let you on "guest operating" systems - only works for Microsoft installs

Any else thinking of installing Solaris10 within vmware will need to edit their *.vmx config file for Solaris10 and add the line paevm="TRUE" before you power-on.

Don't bother with Solaris9. I haven't got graphics working on that yet...I'm left in console mode at present
