- Is this package for the use of vmware1 server, vmware2 server or
none? Or simply, what versions of vmware does it support?
Likely all recent versions of VMWare guest OS. I use it with Workstation 6.5,
I've never tried it with VMWare Server.
- Does the installation of the kmod package suppress the need of
vmware-config.pl everytime the kernel is updated?
Right, that's the idea. At least with akmod setup.
- Or do people still need to run vmware-config.pl?
There's no vmware-config.pl anymore. open-vm-tools should not be installed
alongside the "official" Guest RPM.
- What makes this package good?
The list of features provided is available on the upstream wiki page.
Essentially drag'n'drop, the guest tools gui, shared folders, the fast network
module, plus some memory optimizations, etc...
We always need more documentation, but to me this goes beyond the task of the
packager. "yum info" provides the package summary and the upstream URL. If the
package summary and description is incomplete, we can address that, otherwise
the upstream URL is the correct place to get documentation, I don't see the
value of replicating this on our own website. Besides, you can't expect
packagers to act as technical writers...
