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.

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


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

this can be resolved 5.14 & the latest open-vm-tools have hit experimental - thanks!
