VMware 5.5.1 and OSX 10.4.5 all patches DVD install...

Either officially in a beta version or unofficialy that someone has been able to assemble maybe using the Linux drivers that VMWare tools have ?

The video emulation is quite slow without any proper driver under VMWare and officially there is no VMWare tools for OSX AFAIK, although I read some threads in other forums claiming that there was some sort of beta directories on VMWare tools CD ISO of 5.5 betas but it didn't include the drivers yet.


Does anyone know anything about it ?

Sorry, no beta drivers exist for vmware. There aren't even NVIDIA drivers for OSX. I find VESA mode for OSX in vmware isn't that bad... You won't just beable to port any linux drivers over to OSX for vmware either. Its a complety different environment, OSX doesn't run Xwindows, but apple proprietary interface. Don't expect EMC/Vmware to support ANY Apple technology ANY time soon either....
