Description

A display driver for Mac OS 10.5+ running as a VMware guest OS.

Update [September 7th, 2014]: As of VMware Fusion 7.0.0, VMware Tools for Mac (darwin.iso) - VMwareGfx.kext has all the features of VMsvga2 and is maintained by VMware. It is recommended to transition to VMwareGfx.kext, as VMsvga2 is no longer under development.
Additionally, guestd_patches do not work with darwin.iso from Fusion 7.0.0 - the patch causes vmware-tools-daemon to crash.

    It doesn't work for OS X Yosemite . Screen goes black. Had to uninstall this . @rishabhmalik759 Follow this link . www.developermemo.com/640426/ to uninstall this file But i had to do this since i wasn't able to access the folders 1. Download uninstall.sh from sourceforge.net/projects/vmsvga2/files/ 2. Copied this file into the desktop(or some place where you can view the files->YourPath). 3. Open Terminal and type sudo YourPath/Uninstall.sh , and then press 1 to uninstall. 4. Install VM Tools again.

    Great , Great and Great i can say. it runs great on my Mavericks. But can we have an update for Yosemite. these drivers are not working for OS X 10.10 Yosemite. Yosemite is release now. So i request you to please update it for Yosemite. Having resolution problems and graphics quality is low on yousemite virtual machine. Please update it. Thanks. Once again, great effort.

    this little application does big things. It certainly saved me from all the hassle of installing mac osx on my laptop's hard drive, instead of vmware. Great job !
