Default VMware Server Tools

Hi.

I can't find vmware-server-tools in layman. Before I used it to
install tools:

# equery list | grep vmware-server-tools
app-emulation/vmware-server-tools-1.0.3.44356


Now I can't find tools:

# layman -l
* vmware [Subversion] (source: http://overlays.gentoo.org...)

# emerge --search vmware-server-tools
Searching...
[ Results for search key : vmware-server-tools ]
[ Applications found : 0 ]

Are they not supported now? Does anybody try to use open-vm-tools
instead? Usually I need tools to sync time with host only.


Thanks for help.

Vmware tools are now included in vmware-server. After starting a
VM, choose "Install VMware Tools" from the VM menu.

Use the open-vm-tools. They work quite fine and contain all features provided
by the previous closed source ones.
