I'm trying to install Vmware tools in FreeBSD 11 but I got this message:

guest memory manager failed

enter image description here

I'm using VMware Workstation 12.5.2

Gnome is working well but in small screen size

enter image description here

Is there any solution for that ?

I've already tried this method: how to install Vmware tools


Try to compile the module by youself:

  1. tail /var/log/messages Jan 8 23:10:59 service3 kernel: KLD vmmemctl.ko: depends on kernel - not available or version mismatch

  2. Execute "Step 7.3 – Compile the vmmemctl module" http://www.rhyous.com/2012/05/09/installing-vmware-tools-on-freebsd-9-without-xorg/
