Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /usr/local/pkg/open-vm-tools
When installing the open-VM-tools on an pfSense installed on VMware ESX 4.1 the installer process ends with the following error;
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /usr/local/pkg/open-vm-tools.inc on line 23
After rebooting the pfSense the system becomes unusable.
Anyone with the same issue?
Fixed it by installing vmware-tools manualy.
Use the vmware-tools from VMware server.
there are some topics about open-vm-tools not working currently ….
could you give more detail about getting the proprietary version working ?
Reinstall the package in about 5 minutes, the syntax error should be fixed.
