Sat Aug  4 10:45:41 UTC 2012 - dimstar@opensuse.org

- autostart-wrapper: unset SESSION_MANAGER. This helps newer
  gnome-session versions to not try to track this task. Due to the
  double fork() it gets it wrong and delays logout (waiting for a
  timeout to terminate this user task) (bgo#681904).

Fri Jun  8 12:04:35 UTC 2012 - jreidinger@suse.com

- Add kernel-3_4.patch: Fix build for kernel-3.4.

  example does not have all symbols available and fails to load

Fri Mar 30 20:02:49 UTC 2012 - dimstar@opensuse.org

- Add a tools.conf to the package. All settings are left to default
  except [guestinfo] / disable-perf-mon=1, which resolves

Thu Mar 15 13:56:41 UTC 2012 - prusnak@opensuse.org

    The default log level is not chatty, so few messages should
    make it to syslog during normal operation.
  + The GUI version of the toolbox was removed.

Wed Apr 27 08:58:46 UTC 2011 - dimstar@opensuse.org

- Extend the init script to detect the name of the balloon driver,
  which changed several times in the kernel.

Thu Apr 14 19:35:44 UTC 2011 - dimstar@opensuse.org

- Update to 2011.03.28:
  + HGFS mounter and vmusr's suid wrapper were changed to avoid
    issues with symlink attacks. A new mount utility for vmblock on
    Solaris and FreeBSD was added.
  + The VMCI driver was thoroughly reworked so that it can serve as
    both the host and guest VMCI driver. This is mostly targeted at
    supporting nested VMs.
  + vmusr got better integration with X's session manager,
    including proper cleanup during session teardown.
  + Unity has been enhanced to better handle some desktop

  + vmxnet3.tar.bz2
  + vmemctl.tar.bz2
- Fix some lint warnings: obsolete only <, not <=, Add PreReq:
  permissions to the -gui package.

- Fix build with Factory: verify the list of modules that are not
  yet merged into the main kernel.

Wed Dec 22 08:29:03 UTC 2010 - dimstar@opensuse.org

- Update to version 2010.12.19:
  + New version of DnD code lands in open-vm-tools. The host part
    of the new DnD protocol is not available yet in VMware
    products, though.
  + vmtoolsd gets some new functionality to support new features
    being developed internally.
  + vmxnet driver for FreeBSD fixed to allow changing the MAC
  + lots of bug fixes and other cleanups in various areas.
- Re-enable building of X dependenices (with_X 1)

- Better logic to easily disable modules that got inlcluded in the
  Linux Kernel, for bnc#605085.

Thu Apr 22 11:25:39 CEST 2010 - dimstar@opensuse.org

- Re-introduce vmxnet3 on openSUSE <= 11.2. Up to then we have
  kernel 2.26.31, which does not bring the vmxnet3 driver yet.
  The driver itself is the last one shipped with open-vm-tools,
  version 2009.12.16.

Wed Apr 21 10:36:21 CEST 2010 - dimstar@opensuse.org

- Send SIGUSR1 to vmware-user process when the services are being
  stopped. This possibly solves bnc#544400.

Wed Apr  7 10:44:31 UTC 2010 - dimstar@opensuse.org

- Add open-vm-tools-libpng14.patch to fix build with libpng 1.4.

  + Updates in Linux kernel modules for compatibility with newer
  + New functionality in the Unity support code.

Tue Mar 23 09:27:23 UTC 2010 - dimstar@opensuse.org

- Disabled vmxnet3 building. this only did not give an error anyhow
  as there was a typo, thus having the module already disabled for
  quite some time.
- bnc#590329: Re-add lost 50-vmnics.conf file.

Thu Feb 25 20:42:39 UTC 2010 - dominique.leuenberger@tmf-group.com

  + Linux modules have been updated to compile on newer kernels
  + Solaris modules now should compile on OpenSolaris
    (tested on 2009.06).
  + Other than those, mostly bug fixes and minor refactoring.

Wed Jan  6 11:36:07 UTC 2010 - dimstar@opensuse.org

- Update to 2009.12.16:
  + Some improvements to vmtoolsd, base libraries and and the
    plugin interface.
  + Some library refactoring: use new lock library, changes to
    support compilation of some code on ARM.
  + some fixes in configure.ac to try to correctly support newer
  + vsock/vmci improvements.
  + bug fixes in the vmxnet / vmxnet3 drivers, and FreeBSD's
    vmblock driver.
  + vmxnet3 for Linux is now upstream (as of Linux 2.6.32), and
    will be removed from later releases of open-vm-tools.
  + pvscsi will be available upstream starting with Linux 2.6.33
    and at that time will be removed from open-vm-tools.
- Disable building of vmxnet3 if kernel is 2.6.32 or newer.

Mon Nov 23 22:04:39 CET 2009 - dimstar@opensuse.org

- Update to 2009.11.17

  + The HGFS module got some performance enhancements.
  + Minor enhancements to vmtoolsd and the logging system.
  + Fix for a few issues reported on the sourceforge bug tracker.
  + Lots of code refactoring, and a few bug fixes.

Mon Nov 21 13:17:03 CEST 2009 - dimstar@opensuse.org

- Update to 2009.09.18
  + Mostly bug fixes and minor enhancements.
  + The pvscsi code was re-factored in preparation for upstreaming.
    The driver has been sent to the LKML for inclusion in the main
    Linux tree and might be removed from open-vm-tools once it's

Mon Aug 10 18:37:21 CEST 2009 - dimstar@opensuse.org

- Update to 2009.08.24
  + Remove support for Linux kernels < 2.6.9.

    better performance than the previous.
  + New infrastructure for sending more network config-related
    information about the virtual machine to the host.
  + Other bug fixes and minor improvements to the code.

Sat Aug  8 13:31:49 CEST 2009 - dominique-obs@leuenberger.net

- move libguestlib.so to the devel pakage, which we have since
  version 2009.07.22 and remove the rpmlint check for it.
- Remove the autoreconf call. We do not patch any Makefiles anymore.
- Require libvmtools0 from the -devel package.
- Drop the rpmlintrc file. Permissions are correctyl set, devel
  package split out.

Thu Aug  6 16:43:54 CEST 2009 - meissner@suse.de

- Adjust specfile permission handling to match SUSE standard, snippet
  moved to permissions package. bnc#474285

Thu Jul 23 11:35:10 CEST 2009 - dominique-obs@leuenberger.net

- Update to 2009.07.22
  * Better support for dkms by means of a script to help create a
    dkms tree.
  * "make install" now also installs header files for public
    libraries, plus a few fixes to incorrect install behavior.
  * Lots of improvements to the new DnD code.
  * This will be the last release with support for Linux
    kernels < 2.6.9.
- fix compatibiliy update script to redirect stderr to /dev/null
  (in case the script is not found, do not scare the user)

Tue Jul 21 12:19:11 CEST 2009 - prusnak@suse.cz

- added || : to modprobe -r and umount calls in vmtoolsd [bnc#523342]

Fri Jun 19 08:55:36 CEST 2009 - dominique-obs@leuenberger.net

- Updated to 2009.06.18
  * Mostly a bug fix release.
  * vmhgfs now is able to use vsock as a transport (although
    backend support for HGFS over vsock is not yet released in
    VMware products).
- Removed patch open-vm-tools-wiperPosix.patch. An alternative
  solution was integrated upstream 
- Dropped patch open-vm-tools-rpath.patch: merged upstream

Sat May 23 09:38:07 CEST 2009 - dominique-obs@leuenberger.net

- Updated to 2009.05.22
  * Mostly a cleanup and bug fix release.
  * Fix a build issue where a symlink attack could cause the 
    open-vm-tools build to overwrite data (by placing a symlink in
  * Second (and last?) batch of changes to clean up duplicate files
    in the source tree, including Solaris and FreeBSD kernel
     modules andother module-specific shared files.
  * Plugins now are properly built using plugins_LTLIBRARIES so 
    that "-rpath" doesn't need to be used (this would cause an
    RPATH entry to be added to the final binary, which some tools
    didn't like).
  * open-vm-tools now properly detects PAM and enables PAM support
    in the code. 
- Removed -rpath.patch. Variation of it integrated upstream
- Added patch to consume (-wiperPosix.patch) the result of fgets
- BuildRequires pam-devel
- The pam miss-naming on x86_64 has been fixed upstream
- Add a new -rpath patch. Not everything is solved upstream.
- Delete arch dependent files from /usr/share (not yet needed)

Sat Apr 25 23:24:33 CEST 2009 - dominique.leuenberger@tmf-group.com

- Upgrade to snapshot 2009.04.23
  * Implemented copy & paste support for RTF data and file contents.
  * guestd has been removed from open-vm-tools; vmtoolsd is now the only
    option for the main tools service.
  * Added vmblock and vmmemctl modules for Solaris (under the CDDL).
  * vmware-user can now work with both vmblock-fuse and vmblock.
  * Linux HGFS now has a stream-based (TCP, vsock) transport, still under
  * First batch of changes to cleanup duplicated files in the source tree.
    Most duplicated files in the Linux kernel modules have been cleaned up. 
- Extensive rewrite of the spec file: 
  * make use of the now upstream provided make install
  * configure --no-root-privileges, to not install mount.vmhgfs as suid
- Add patch open-vm-tools-2009.04.23-rpath.diff: removes the rpath logic
  which was introduced for the vmusr and vmsvc plugins. libtools is broken
  in this respect. (patch submitted upstream for review)
- Extend preun section with  service rename (vmware-guest -> vmtoolsd)
  (patch provided by prusnak)
- forcibly activate vmtoolsd service also on update.
- fix up the KMP rename: for this to work we need to provide / obsolete
  vmware-kmp and vmware-kmp-<kernelflavor>; otherwise, zypper starts pulling
  in other kernels.

Sat Mar 21 00:03:12 CET 2009 - dominique@leuenberger.net

- rename vmware-KMP to vmware-guest-KMP for easier identification 
  of the use and to avoid confusion (users installing the KMP on the
  vmware hosts) (bnc#481137)
- create subpackage libvmtools0

Thu Mar 19 13:02:15 CET 2009 - dominique@leuenberger.net

- Upgrade to snapshot 2009.03.18
  * Mostly a bug fix release.
  * The new DnD V3 protocol is now available in open-vm-tools.
  * vmtoolsd is now preferred instead of vmware-guestd
    - vmware-guestd will most probably be completely removed in the next release.
    -> vmtoolsd is not yet standard enabled in openSUSE packages.
- Obsolete merged patches vmxnet and vmxnet3.patch.

Mon Mar  9 21:38:17 CET 2009 - mmarek@suse.cz

- renamed modprobe config to /etc/modprobe.d/50-vmnics.conf
  (required by new module-init-tools).

Thu Feb 19 09:40:12 CET 2009 - dominique@leuenberger.net

- Upgrade to snapshot 2009.02.18
  * open-vm-tools now depend on glib 2.6.0 as a minimum requirement.
  * Added vmxnet module for Solaris, and reworked the HGFS module so it
    works without help from vmware-guestd.
  * Added implementation of new DnD protocol, which adds a dependency on
    a C++ compiler and the gtkmm library to vmware-user.
  * The code from the "core services" has been added to open-vm-tools,
    including a few tests. vmtoolsd + plugins are now capable of replacing
    vmware-guestd (vmware-user still needs to have some features ported
    over), but this code is still not to be considered as stable as the
    legacy services, so vmware-guestd is still included.
  * A few fixes for compatibility with non-GNU toolchains, newer Linux
    kernels and old gcc compilers.
- Added patch open-vm-tools-2009.02.18-vmxnet.patch
  Allows to compile kernelmodule vmxnet with kernels 2.6.29
  And open-vm-tools02009.02.18-vmxnet3.patch

Mon Feb 16 14:26:13 CET 2009 - dominique@leuenberger.net

- Remove noDisplay=true from vmware-user.desktop, as KDE4
  does not autostart the app in this case. Fixes BNC #475627

Thu Feb 12 10:46:15 CET 2009 - dominique@leuenberger.net

- Added vmware-user-autostart-wrapper to solve bnc #474076
  Using simple autostart technique, it can happen that the device
  at /proc/fs/vmblock/dev is not ready when vmware-user is started
  the autostart-wrapper takes this into account and tries for 
  several times.
- Fix RPMLint warning with regarding wrong encoding of README file

Wed Feb 11 20:45:00 CET 2009 - dominique@leuenberger.net

- Revert suid install of vmware-user-suid-wrapper, as rpmlint does
  not like it
  Instead we package /etc/permissions.d/open-vm-tools which sets
  the permission usig SuSEconfig.permissions
- Adjust the vmware-user.desktop file to actually launch
  vmware-user-suid-wrapper. Access to the vmblock requires su right.
  the suid-wrapper get's the file handle, drops the suid rights
  and launches vmware-user (with user privileges)

Tue Feb 10 11:07:27 CET 2009 - prusnak@suse.cz

- install vmware-user-suid-wrapper with suid bit

Thu Jan 22 09:05:00 CET 2009 - dominique@leuenberger.net

- Update to version 2009.01.21
    * First open source release of the HGFS module for Solaris,
      under the CDDL. Other modules are expected to be added in
      the upcoming releases.
    * Added an implementation of vmblock on top of FUSE;
      vmware-user still  doesn't use this module even if it is
      available, though.
    * Linux modules now add the "supported" tag used by Novell in
      their SLES 10 SP2 release when loading modules.
    * Fix compilation of modules in newer Linux kernels which
      don't include $(LINUXINCLUDE) in the compiler flags anymore.
- Added Requires: kernel-%1 to preamble, as rpmlint said it would
  be policy to require kenrel-$favour from the kmp
- marked config files in /etc as %config (rpmlint)

Thu Dec 25 16:37:00 CEST 2008 - dominique@leuenberger.net

- Update to version 2008.12.23
  * Lots of makefile cleanup with the switch to using libtool archives.
  * Automatically disable Unity if multimon support is disabled.
  * Actually build the pvscsi modules.
  * First bits of the "Core Service" project are starting to show up; the
    base "vmtools" library was added to the package. It currently is mostly
    a collection of the existing libraries already shipped with open-vm-tools,
    plus some extra functionality build on top of glib. Currently no other
    code in open-vm-tools uses it, so it's optional.
  * The HGFS driver was fixed for the Linux 2.6.28 kernel.

Wed Nov 19 19:04:00 CEST 2008 - dominique@leuenberger.net

- Updated to version 2008.11.19
  * The pvscsi Linux kernel module has been added (for kernels >= 2.6.8).
    It provides access to VMware's new paravirtualized SCSI device.
  * The HGFS driver and user-level code has seen a lot of refactoring to
    enable more consistent name escaping. The FreeBSD driver now supports
  * The Linux module makefiles now support exporting symbol version files,
    allowing modules with dependencies (such as vsock, which depends on vmci)
    to correctly build and load on Linux >= 2.6.26 with CONFIG_MODVERSIONS.
  * Rudimentary support for dkms.
  * Assortment of bug fixes.

Wed Oct 15 20:41:00 CEST 2008 - dominique@leuenberger.net

- Updated to version 2008.10.10
  * The vmxnet3 Linux kernel module has been added. This module provides
    better network performance for the guest. The corresponding virtual
    hardware is available beginning with Workstation 6.5, though
    performance benefits are unlikely to be realized until a later VMware
    product release. The module should work for all kernels beginning with
  * The open-vm-tools no longer depend on libproc-dev. Several people
    reported this issue (Sourceforge bug 1960947).
  * Added a command line argument to skip privileged operations during
    make install (--without-root-privileges).
  * Guestd now supports backwards time synchronization, though the
    corresponding hypervisor-side changes are not yet part of any shipping
    VMware products.
  * Assortment of bug fixes.

Wed Sep 17 10:14:00 CEST 2008 - prusnak@suse.cz

- fixed license problem with region.c by applying patch from upstream

Mon Sep  8 20:41:00 CEST 2008 - dominique@leuenberger.net

Wed Sep  3 11:10:15 CEST 2008 - prusnak@suse.cz

- updated to 2008-09-03
  * Fixed an issue where open-vm-tools fails to configure when using
    --without-icu. Thanks to Timo Gurr for reporting the issue
    (Sourceforge bug 2046262).
  * Fixed failed build on Ubuntu Intrepid and Fedora 9.
    Thanks to Nathan Charles for reporting the issue
    (Sourceforge bug 2048423).
  * Fixed kernel module build issues on 2.6.27 pre-release kernels.
    Thanks to Dominique Leuenberger for reporting the issue
    (Sourceforge bug 2071170).
  * ...and other bug fixes.
- dropped obsoleted patches:
  * 2.6.27-kernel.patch (included in update)
  * fix-Werror.patch (included in update)

  of open-vm-tools-gui sub package

Fri Aug 22 07:30:15 CEST 2008 - dominique@leuenberger.net

 - Re-arranged comments for the configure line. Apparently, comments
   that appear in a line continuing on the next line, split using '\'
   break the flow

Wed Aug 20 23:02:15 CEST 2008 - dominique@leuenberger.net

- Added --without-kernel-modules to configure, as we take
  care of it on ourself using the loop, for the different
  kernel variants

- updated to 2008.08.08
  * Unity for X11 guests has been added. Unity is implemented within
    vmware-user and requires no additional setup beyond setting up the
    vmware-user application itself. Unity should work with Fusion 1.x
    releases as well as with the upcoming Workstation 6.5 release. Our
    in-house testing was with Linux guests, and they should mostly work.
    There is very little standing in the way of FreeBSD/Solaris support,
    though we've never built or tested Unity for those platforms.
  * The VMCI Linux kernel module has been added. This module provides
    high-speed datagram and socket interfaces for guest<->guest and
    host<->guest communication. It should work for all kernels beginning
    with 2.4, and for VMware products beginning with Workstation 6.5.
  * The VMCI sockets Linux kernel module has been added. It provides
    both datagram and stream socket interfaces to userlevel for use with
    VMCI. As with VMCI, it should work for kernels 2.4 or later, and for
    VMware products beginning with Workstation 6.5.
  * The command-line Toolbox has been added. This application provides
    the same functionality as the GTK Toolbox, but with a scriptable
    command-line interface. It also has some statistic retrieval commands
    that aren't found in the GTK Toolbox.
  * Fixed compilation of vmsync and vmmemctl Linux kernel modules on
    2.6.26. Thanks to Pavol Rusnak for the report (Sourceforge bug 2032683).
  * Fixed an issue with guestd's nicInfo updating mechanism. Thanks to
    Jason Lunz for the patch (not tracked on Sourceforge).
  * Fixed handling of $(DESTDIR) in automake. Thanks to Mike Auty for
    the patch (Sourceforge bug 2018802).
  * Fixed build of vmware-user using gtk 1.2. Thanks to Stephen Duncan
    for the report (Sourceforge bug 2014338).
  * Fixed compilation of lib/guestApp when using --without-x. Thanks to
    Martin Preishuber for the report (Sourceforge bug 2013568).
  * As usual, other bug fixes.

- updated to 2008.07.01:
  * fixed a backwards time synchronization issue
  * fixed an issue where open-vm-tools configured via --without-x didn't
    compile (not tracked on Sourceforge)
  * one can now pass --without-kernel-modules, --with-kernel-release, and
    --with-linuxdir to the ./configure script
  * other bug fixes.
- branched open-vm-tools-gui subpackage with tools that need X

Mon Jun  9 22:49:17 EEST 2008 - dominique-obs@leuenberger.net

- Updated to version 2008.06.03
  adopted spec file to new build structure layout (the binaries
  are now named correctly just after build and do not need to
  be renamed anymore)
- Replaced -werror patch with -fix-Werror-patch (submitted to
  VMware for inclusion)

Mon Jun  2 11:11:17 CEST 2008 - prusnak@suse.cz

  * check whether /tmp/VMwareDnD exists and create it if necessary
  * use modules vmblock, vmmemctl, vmsync for better performance
  * mount the virtual system for Drag'n'Drop

  The KMP is installed by Supplements: the hardware ID, and the KMP
  then pulls in the open-vm-tools package by Recommends (if available)
