This package is currently outdated and broken. Please fix.

Hi guys,

The package is currently not compiling on my side :
It looks like there's a compilation error with vmhgfs.

Any idea?

>> You should install open-vm-tools and use vmhgfs-fuse

The Arch wiki is out of date. How does one go about using vmhgfs-fuse for shares?

Edit: I have updated the wiki entry:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VMware/Installing_Arch_as_a_guest#Tips_and_tricks

with the methods I managed to get to work using vmhgfs-fuse. It feels like a bit of a hack - comments or critiques?

Thanks.

ok I added JackM patch and updated pkg, it works now, but this is last time I update it.

You should install open-vm-tools and use vmhgfs-fuse

I am experiencing the same issue as JackM. I tried applying his patch, but no luck.
Now I am not getting anywhere, any guidance would be hugely appreciative.

@JackM you can submit PR to https://github.com/davispuh/open-vm-tools-dkms
also it probably should be 0006 instead of 0001

I'll test, merge and update package later.
