    Default install vmfs-tools possible ?

    does anybody know about a version of vmfs-tools that can be installed on current Backtrack 4 R2 ?

    vmfs-tools are a package to read the VMFS-filesystem used by VMware ESX servers.

    the package is available at

    I have tried to install from source via make install and also tried various deb packages - no luck so far

    thank you

    Thanks for your interest - but vmware-tools and vmfs-tools are not related

    Anyway - I installed from source after adding the missing dependencies with apt-get and it looks like almost everything except "debug-vmfs" works.

    Still need to test against a real VMFS-volume.
    If that test passes I will write a short howto
