Just install the package. There is no GUI for control, the services are automatically started at boot time.
There are two portions of this package, the vmware-guestd process and the kernel modules.
Go to Diagnostics -> Command, and in "Execute shell command", enter the following:
ps ax|grep vmware
You will see something like this:
$ ps ax|grep vmware 1026 ?? Ss 0:20.84 /usr/local/sbin/vmware-guestd --background /var/run/vmware_guestd.pid --halt-command /sbin/shutdown -p now 19157 ?? SN 0:00.00 sh -c ps ax|grep vmware 19159 ?? RN 0:00.00 grep vmware (sh)
As long as /usr/local/sbin/vmware-guestd is shown there, it is working.
In the "Execute shell command" box, enter the following:
The output will be similar to this:
$ kldstat Id Refs Address Size Name 1 8 0xc0400000 93ca60 kernel 2 1 0xc0d3d000 6a32c acpi.ko 3 1 0xc20d1000 3000 vmmemctl.ko 4 1 0xc20f5000 4000 vmxnet.ko 5 1 0xc20f9000 5000 vmblock.ko 6 1 0xc20fe000 a000 vmhgfs.ko
As long as you see vmmemctl.ko, vmxnet.ko, vmblock.ko and vmhgfs.ko, the kernel modules all loaded properly.
