Re: Well, this sucks… /etc/modules isn’t a link anymore

Forums Network Management ZeroShell [Successful, apparently] 64-bit Kernel running VMware Tools? Re: Well, this sucks… /etc/modules isn’t a link anymore


In the 64-bit kernel, /etc/modules isn’t a symbolic link anymore. This means one critical step (creating a modified /etc/modules with VMware Tools modules added) can’t happen easily.

The step in question copies the contents of /lib/modules (linked to /etc/modules since 3.0.0) and then temporarily redirects it to a folder in /DB so the VMware Tools installer can save (or find?) things in it. The post-boot script copies files from this location into /etc, which is in RAM, before it tries launching the Tools process.

Maybe that step isn’t needed anymore if /etc/modules is a read/write folder now? Or would I have to go picking through there to find added files now?
