Gentoo 2.6.22 and VMWARE Virtual Infrastructure
I made sure to follow the steps outlined in HOWTO Install Gentoo on VMware in Windows NT/2K/XP - Gentoo Linux Wiki with no luck, FusionMPT and SCSI down level drivers are loaded in the menuconfig prior to compiling the kernel. Also I have not added them as modules, all are built into the kernel when compiling.
There was a patch mentioned here:http://communities.vmware.com/message/663636 but I don't think it applies and I have no idea how to even install it.
Has anyone else had any luck getting Gentoo to boot on a VMWARE ESX Server setup? I just can't get the driver to load.
