From this Web site, you can search, browse, and download Operating System Specific Packages (OSPs) for select supported guest operating systems. OSPs are a packaging and distribution mechanism for VMware Tools that uses the native package formats and standards, such as rpm and deb, of the supported guest operating systems.
Offering an alternative to standard VMware Tools installation mechanisms, OSPs leverage your operating system's native update mechanisms to automatically download, install, and manage VMware Tools as appropriate for that operating system. With OSPs, you manage VMware Tools from within the guest in the same way you would other standard software.
VMware provides OSPs for older operating systems. For newer operating systems, the vendor or community provides open-vm-tools as part of the operating system, and VMware recommends that you use the open-vm-tools that come with these operating systems. VMware does not provide OSPs for operating system for which open-vm-tools are available. To learn more about open-vm-tools, see the open-vm- tools Open Source project.
The following list identifies the guest operating systems for which VMware supports and provides OSPs. Generally, newer operating system releases are only supported on more recent platform releases. For detailed guest operating system support, see the VMware Compatibility Guide.
To download an OSP for your guest operating system, visit the package repository at
http://packages.vmware.com/tools. Your usage of the VMware Tools OSPs found on this Web site is governed by the VMWARE MASTER END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT.
To learn how to download and install OSPs, see the VMware Tools Installation Guide for Operating System Specific Packages:
