open-vm-tools does not support alpine linux
My logs are being spammed by open-vm-tools because it cannot locate /etc/distrofile
user.warn vmsvc: [ warning] [vmsvc] HostinfoOSData: Error:
no distro file found
user.warn vmsvc: [ warning] [guestinfo] Failed to get OS info.
Inside the open-vm-tools archive there is a file called hostinfoPosix.c which has a list of “supported” operating systems/distro’s.
Not sure we can just add /etc/alpine-release and be done with it.
