  1. Uninstall the VMware tools before doing the upgrade. Or do a clean install of 10.8 by converting the 10.8 DMG to a CDR with Disk Utility, copy it to your host (through shared folders or scp) and then mount that in VMWare as an ISO.
  2. In WS9, sound works out of the box with OS X 10.8. WS9 emulates an Intel HD Audio chip and the driver that comes with 10.8 works fine with it. However, in OS X 10.6, no sound device is seen by the OS. Is there a driver that will work with VMWare's emulated HDA chip? As a workaround, one can switch from HDA to the Ensoniq Audio PCI emulation (by editing the vmx) and then use zenith's audio driver. But this has the usual sound dropout problems. The HDA driver in OS X 10.8 seems to work much better, and so it would be cool if it was somehow possible to use it for 10.6 too.
  3. Hmm. Works fine here though. No black screens and it's as fast as with WS8. These are fresh installs of OS X 10.6 and 10.8 on Workstation 9.0.0 under Linux. I only had the black screen problem when trying to run the already existing WS8 VMs on WS9 (upgrade virtual hardware to WS9 didn't help.) When creating new VMs and doing the fresh installs, there were no black screens with VMsvga2 v1.2.4.
  4. Unlocker.cpp needs a minor fix. It needs to: #include <unistd.h> Otherwise it won't compile with GCC 4.7.2: Unlocker.cpp: In function 'int {anonymous}::map_file(const char*, void**, size_t*)': Unlocker.cpp:515:11: error: 'close' was not declared in this scope Unlocker.cpp:521:11: error: 'close' was not declared in this scope Unlocker.cpp:524:10: error: 'close' was not declared in this scope Unlocker.cpp: In function 'int main(int, char**)': Unlocker.cpp:628:14: error: 'geteuid' was not declared in this scope However, when running it, it looks for libvmwarebase.so.0 in the wrong place: $ sudo ./Unlocker.Linux /opt/vmware/lib/vmware/bin Patching /opt/vmware/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-vmx File mapped @0x7f3c6801b000 length 14494800 Found OSK0 @ 0x7f3c688609b5 Found OSK1 @ 0x7f3c688609ed Found SRVR @ 0x7f3c6888470e Patching /opt/vmware/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-vmx-debug File mapped @0x7f3c67bd8000 length 18960552 Found OSK0 @ 0x7f3c685626d5 Found OSK1 @ 0x7f3c6856270d Found SRVR @ 0x7f3c68586c76 Patching /opt/vmware/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-vmx-stats File mapped @0x7f3c67d8c000 length 17177920 Found OSK0 @ 0x7f3c6860ad75 Found OSK1 @ 0x7f3c6860adad Found SRVR @ 0x7f3c6863052e Patching /opt/vmware/lib/vmware/bin/libvmwarebase.so.0 open failed No such file or directory The actual place of that file is: $ find /opt/vmware -type f -name libvmwarebase.so.0 /opt/vmware/lib/vmware/lib/libvmwarebase.so.0/libvmwarebase.so.0 This is true for both VMWare Workstation 8.0.4 and 9.0.0.
