I got real sick and tired of the left click getting stuck in my MBR Align guest, midway through a vmdk alignment. While I did see some fixes, all I really needed was SSH enabled so I could run the necessary utilities from the command line.
To enable SSH on the MBR Align Suse VM, do the following:
Open the shell
Enter the below command:
sudo /etc/rc.d/./sshd start
Thats it; done.
