Typos in manpage for vmhgfs
Binary package hint: open-vm-tools
The manpage for the vmhgfs module states that the user can place the following line in their /etc/fstab file to have the shared folders mounted at boot time:
host:/ /mnt/hgfs vmhgfs defaults 0 0
However, previously in the same document and also from other documentation and error messages the correct line would be
.host:/ /mnt/hgfs vmhgfs defaults 0 0
(Notice the leading period)
Finally, it should be noted that the user must also create the mount point /mnt/hgfs. Users who have previously used the VMware Guest Tools provided by VMware have this done for them and may not realize it at first.
This was tested on 10.04, but I noticed that this typo appears in previous releases as well.
