NAME

       vmware-user-suid-wrapper - wrapper programm for vmware-user(1)

SYNOPSIS

       vmware-user-suid-wrapper

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       vmware-user-suid-wrapper has no options.
