* Wed Mar 13 2019 kallan <>
  - Link VGAuthService to libxmlsec1 rather than libxml-security-c for
    SLES 15 and SLES 15 SP1. It requires libxmlsec1 to be available in the
    base.  VGAuthService is already being linked with libxmlsec1 for
    SLES 12 SP4.  (bsc#1122435)
* Tue Feb 26 2019 Martin Liška <>
  - Add gcc9-warnings.patch (bsc#1126102).
* Fri Feb 08 2019
  - Link VGAuthService to libxmlsec1 rather than libxml-security-c in SLE
    products where available. (bsc#1122435)
  - Add patches to correct and/or improve handling of certain quiesced snapshot
    failures (bsc#1124397).
    + no_manifest_on_aborted_snapshot.patch
      Don't send a backup manifest when aborting a Linux quiesced snapshot.
    + vmtoolsd_bailout_on_rpc_errors.patch
      Bail out vmtoolsd early when there are RPC errors.
    + send_vmbackup_event_generic_manifest.patch
      Always send VMBACKUP_EVENT_GENERIC_MANIFEST during quiesced snapshots.
    + include_log_h_for_g_info.patch
      Include vmware/tools/log.h to define g_info.
* Tue Jan 29 2019
  - Update vmtoolsd.service to support cloud-init customization by default
    by adding "DefaultDependencies=no" and "Before=cloud-init-local.service"
    to the [Unit] section of vmtoolsd.service (bsc#1121964) .
  - Copyright year updated in spec file.
* Fri Nov 09 2018
  - Update to 10.3.5 (build 10430147) (boo#1115118)
    + While running a quiesced snapshot of a Linux guest on the vSphere hosts
      earlier than version 6.7, open-vm-tools logs warning messages.
    + CreateTemporaryFileInGuest/CreateTemporaryDirectoryInGuest returns a file
      path that does not exist.
    + Excessive spikes of the Memory/Workload percentage metric, in a vRealize
      Operations cluster.
    + open-vm-tools Service running as vmusr crashes on Linux systems which are
      not running on the VMware platform.
  - Drop unnecessary patch:
    - false-negative-cloud-init.patch
    - handle-linux-kernel-stat-overflow.patch
    - optional-override-os-name.patch
* Fri Oct 12 2018
  - Added Handle Linux kernel /proc FS uint32 type stat overflow when calculating
    + handle-linux-kernel-stat-overflow.patch
      On both 32-bit and 64-bit Linux, tools always parses Linux kernel /proc
      FS stats as uint64 values.  For rate stats, current - previous can handle
      uint64 type stat overflow, but not uint32 type.
  - Added patch for Optional override for short and long OS names sent from Tools
    + optional-override-os-name.patch
      Added support for customers to override the returned long and short OS
      names through the tools config file. If the setting is present, then names
      gathered by hostinfo will be ignored. The user is responsible for setting
      the appropriate names.
  - Added patch for Workaround for false negative result when detecting
    cloud-init existance (bsc#1111619)
    + false-negative-cloud-init.patch
      "cloud-init -v" cmd is used to detect if cloud-init is properly configured
      and it works on most linux distros. However in some linux distro like
      Amazon Linux 2, "cloud-init -v" will print result to stderr instead of
      stdout and it makes "forkExecAndWaitCommand" give false negative result.
      1. added a new bool switch in  "ForkExecAndWaitCommand" to choose
      if we should ignore the stderr output when the return code is 0
      2. removed unnecessary reference for "ForkExecAndWaitCommand" in
      3. trivial change for some formatting
* Wed Aug 15 2018
  - After updating the project to include openSUSE_Leap_15.0 and SLE_15, the
    builds for these two projects fail because of unresolved dependencies.
    Some Factory configuration settings were being used for them.  Need to adjust
    the spec file to not use Factory configuration settings for
    openSUSE_Leap_15.0 and SLE_15.
* Fri Aug 10 2018
  -  Remove vgauthd.service from the %pre and %post section in the spec file.
    This allows vmtoolsd.service to enable vgauthd if needed which creates
    the vmtoolsd.service.requires/vgauthd.service symlink. (bsc#1103868)
  - Add Requires: libxmlsec1-openssl1 to the spec file.  This is needed when
    using xmlsec1 rather than xml-ssecurity-c.
* Mon Aug 06 2018
  - Update to 10.3.0 (build 8931395)
    + Starting with 10.3.0, open-vm-tools builds with xmlsec1 by default (instead
      of building with xml-security). To revert to the old behavior and build
      with xml-security, use the option '--enable-xmlsecurity' for the
      ./configure command.
    + Add BuildRequires:  libxml2-devel
    + Add BuildRequires:  pkgconfig(xmlsec1) for all openSUSE builds
    + Use --enable-xmlsecurity when building for SLE
  - Drop unnecessary patches
    - 100-libtirpc.patch

  - Update to 10.2.5 (build 8068406) (boo#1089181)
    + Compatible with supported versions of VMware vSphere ESXi 5.5 and later,
      VMware Workstation 14.0 and VMware Fusion 10.0.0.
    + Quiesced snapshot: Ability to exclude specific file systems from
      quiesced snapshots on Linux guest operating systems. For more details,
      see [Documentation](
    + Disable display mode setting: A configuration option is introduced to
      disable normal display mode setting functionality using open-vm-tools.
      For more details, see [KB 53572](
  - Drop unnecessary patches
    - udev_rules-disk-devs-only.patch
* Tue Feb 13 2018
  - Stop depending on the meta-package xorg-x11-devel as
    BuildRequires, but use the explicit module names configure is
    looking for: pkgconfig(sm), pkgconfig(xcomposite),
    pkgconfig(xext), pkgconfig(xi), pkgconfig(xinerama),
    pkgconfig(xrandr), pkgconfig(xrender) and pkgconfig(xtst).

    fix. Maybe one day, when there is actual commitment, the module
    and the related tools / mount-helpers can be re-enabled (see also
  - Wrap the KMP Package in a condition to only build when there are
    actually modules to be built (vm_modules not empty).
  - Do not require vmware-guest-kmp from the main package if we do
    not built KMP packages (if there are no modules to be built).

    as there was a typo, thus having the module already disabled for
    quite some time.
  - bnc#590329: Re-add lost 50-vmnics.conf file.

    * Second (and last?) batch of changes to clean up duplicate files
      in the source tree, including Solaris and FreeBSD kernel
      modules andother module-specific shared files.
    * Plugins now are properly built using plugins_LTLIBRARIES so
      that "-rpath" doesn't need to be used (this would cause an
      RPATH entry to be added to the final binary, which some tools
      didn't like).
    * open-vm-tools now properly detects PAM and enables PAM support
      in the code.
  - Removed -rpath.patch. Variation of it integrated upstream
  - Added patch to consume (-wiperPosix.patch) the result of fgets
  - BuildRequires pam-devel

    * First batch of changes to cleanup duplicated files in the source tree.
      Most duplicated files in the Linux kernel modules have been cleaned up.
  - Extensive rewrite of the spec file:
    * make use of the now upstream provided make install
    * configure --no-root-privileges, to not install mount.vmhgfs as suid
  - Add patch open-vm-tools-2009.04.23-rpath.diff: removes the rpath logic
    which was introduced for the vmusr and vmsvc plugins. libtools is broken
    in this respect. (patch submitted upstream for review)
  - Extend preun section with  service rename (vmware-guest -> vmtoolsd)
    (patch provided by prusnak)
  - forcibly activate vmtoolsd service also on update.
  - fix up the KMP rename: for this to work we need to provide / obsolete
    vmware-kmp and vmware-kmp-<kernelflavor>; otherwise, zypper starts pulling
    in other kernels.
* Fri Mar 20 2009
  - rename vmware-KMP to vmware-guest-KMP for easier identification
    of the use and to avoid confusion (users installing the KMP on the

  - Obsolete merged patches vmxnet and vmxnet3.patch.
* Mon Mar 09 2009
  - renamed modprobe config to /etc/modprobe.d/50-vmnics.conf
    (required by new module-init-tools).
