VMWare Workstation 9 - failed to start vmware_guestd

  • 2.0.1-RELEASE (i386) installed on VMWare Workstation 9.

    After installation of Open-VM-Tools (build-313025) following message in log:
    root: /usr/local/etc/rc.d/vmware-guestd.sh: WARNING: failed to start vmware_guestd

    I tried execute it manually and run following command (found in vmware-guestd.sh):
    /usr/local/bin/vmtoolsd -c /usr/local/share/vmware-tools/tools.conf -p /usr/local/lib/open-vm-tools/plugins/vmsvc
    /libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libicui18n.so.46" not found, required by "vmtoolsd"

    How fix it?


  • I use vmware workstation 9 live cd install having no problems and it works fine
