VMware fusion, shared folders fail to work after Linux upgrade

19 Jan

Another handy tip:
When working with VMware Fusion + Linux for Arm cross compilation work, you may add something like this To your environment variables:
export ARCH=arm
export CROSS_COMPILE=/opt/gcc-4.1.2-glibc-2.5-nptl-3/arm-none-linux-gnueabi/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi-
export PATH=/opt/gcc-4.1.2-glibc-2.5-nptl-3/arm-none-linux-gnueabi/bin:$PATH

Be aware that if there is a Kernel upgrade to your linux environment, when the ‘vm-tools’ try to re-complie for the emulator they will fail (because your system is X86 not ‘ARM’).
The same applies if you try and install/re-install VM-tools into a development machine and the above environment variables are set to target a non X86 machine.
