Summary0007340: ARM VmWare Fusion
DescriptionHi Kali Linux Devs,

VMWare has blessed us with the tech preview for ARM based Macs, allowing us to run ARM64 Guests.

There are a number of tweaks needed along with a new kernel (5.14) and release of open-vm-tools to get the full experience working properly.

https://communities.vmware.com/t5/Fusion-for-Apple-Silicon-Tech/Fusion-Tech-Preview-Testing-Guide/ta-p/2867908

Would it be possible to look at getting the updated vmware tools in the repos and possibly the new kernel looked into?

Thanks!

Also is it a possibility to have an ARM VmWare image vended?
