Sorry, I should have put clearer instructions. Also, Chris, if you do updates,
it might to try to re-install the open-vm-tools stuff (this is very
frustrating). So, watch out for that when doing updates.

For anyone else who's viewing this bug and wants to do the same thing as Chris
in comment 5, here are the steps (this will only work on vmware workstation and

1. Take a snapshot before you start the upgrade in case the VM gets screwed up,
you can always just revert back.

2. Open a terminal and switch user to root (pw is mono):
su -

3. Install the kernel-source and upgrade kernel-default (say "yes" to all of
the prompts):
zypper in kernel-source kernel-default

4. Reboot (this is to make sure you're booted on the newest kernel):
shutdown -r now

5. Open a terminal and switch user to root (pw is mono):
su -

6. Remove the open-vm-tools and open-vm-tools-gui rpms:
rpm -e open-vm-tools-gui open-vm-tools

7. Remove the vmware-kmp-default:
rpm -e vmware-kmp-default

8. Reboot:
shutdown -r now

9. Open a terminal and switch user to root (pw is mono):
su -

10. Tell VMware to mount the tools:

11. Install the vmware tools:
cd "/media/VMware Tools"
rpm -ivh *.rpm

12. Run the vmware-config-tools.pl script

13. Take the default answer to all prompts EXCEPT the gcc 4.3 / 4.3.1 one.
Always say "yes" to that one.

14. Reboot:
shutdown -r now

15. You should now be up and running and mouse in / out should work.
