Currently, Open GL 3.3 and GLSL 3.30 can be supported. This is mostly due to the CPU being shared by more than one guest.There are 2 options to set up time synchronization: the host or an external source.For more performance and additional features (such as multiqueue support), the VMware native Arch Linux, as well as other Linux guests, may have slow network speeds while using NAT.To resolve this, switch the network type to Bridged mode in the guest settings on the host, changing the configuration file for the network on the guest where necessary.The incremental backups contain only the changed data blocks in the virtual machine.Zmanda recommends using Amanda client to backup files from guest VM if file level backup of VMs is needed.The SCSI adapter type is available in the Virtual Machine settings.
Client-server applications can write to the VMCI Sock (vsock) interface to make use of the VMCI virtual device, when communicating between virtual machines. In 2007, VMware released large partitions of the VMware Tools under the LGPL as Open-VM-Tools.
Ensure that the paravirtual SCSI adapter is included in the kernel image by modifying the adapter, which emulates an Intel 82545EM Gigabit Ethernet NIC.
This Intel adapter is generally compatible with the built-in drivers across most operating systems, including Arch.
As the package is no longer being updated, newer kernels are not patched correctly using it to be compatible with a host-guest file share.
The Github repository has some patch files that can be manually applied to restore functionality.The relevant modules may have to be added to mkinitcpio.conf: Workstation 11 has a bug where vmware-hostd crashes if an Arch guest is running as a shared VM and vmtoolsd is running in the guest.
