vmblock - vmware kernel module
This is a kernel filesystem module. Ideally, it should be loaded before any of the Tools userlevel components are allowed to start, though
vmblock itself has no dependencies. When loaded, vmblock will establish itself in /proc/fs/vmblock and create two nodes therein, dev and
mountPoint. Before mounting a vmblock filesystem, ensure that /tmp/VMwareDnD exists as a directory with permissions 1777, otherwise host to
guest drag n' drop operations won't work.
To mount, issue:
mount -t vmblock none /proc/fs/vmblock/mountPoint
Once mounted, vmware-user(1) can begin to make use of vmblock to assist with DnD operations. Note that while vmware-user(1) is running,
it'll keep an open file descriptor on /proc/fs/vmblock/dev, and thus all vmware-user(1) instances must be killed to unmount and unload
vmblock has no options.
More information about vmblock and the Open VM Tools can be found at <http://open-vm-tools.sourceforge.net/>.
Open VM Tools were written by VMware, Inc. <http://www.vmware.com/>.
