vmware-user-suid-wrapper - wrapper programm for vmware-user(1)
Operations on the vmblock(9) filesystem are considered privileged, and
as such may only be issued on a file descriptor acquired by root. This
is accomplished by vmware-user-suid-wrapper, a small setuid wrapper
whose only purpose is to acquire a filesystem file descriptor, drop
superuser privileges, and then execute vmware-user(1). In particular,
prepare the system for vmware-user means that it unmounts the vmblock
file system, unloads the vmblock module, then reloads the module,
mounts the file system, and opens a file descriptor that vmware-user
can use to add and remove blocks.
vmware-user-suid-wrapper has no options.
