Description

Currently, the vmx file is a separate download over at the Haiku Factory. Seeing reoccurring support requests on IRC and elsewhere, originating from a lack of a correct vmx file, it makes me wonder how many presumptive users never bother to ask for help and just move on after failing to run Haiku in Vmware. I suggest we provide both files in the nightly zips, if possible.

Seems the VMX got deleted and then wasn't getting zipped up with the VM images. I've now corrected it with two differnet VMX files. One for the vanilla and one of the developer image, as the name of the VMDK file is slightly different.

I downloaded and tested vmhaiku.hrev28641.zip and haiku-pre-alpha-hrev28641-vm.zip. Both of them contained a vmx file and worked fine. I believe this ticket can be closed. Thanks Sikosis!
