VMware Kernel Extensions: Update

by postbreak

I have recently revisited my guide to loading and unloading VMware’s Kernel extensions. There was a problem with the sudoers portion of my guide which did not actually allow the scripts to be run without having recently used the sudo command. A friend of mine (Fishman) did the troubleshooting for me and found the fix. If you have already followed my guide simply fire up the terminal and follow these two steps:

EDITOR=/usr/bin/nano sudo visudo

Remove anything you have added related to VMware and replace it with this one line.

ALL ALL= NOPASSWD: /Library/Application\ Support/VMware\ Fusion/boot.sh
