View Full Version : Has anyone installed VMWare Workstation 9 on Fedora 17 x86_64

Beacuse when I did it, I got a seg fault and couldn't boot any longer so I removed it and fell back to 8.0.3. It seemed to install just fine, all the modules built properly (or so I thought) but when I went to turn on the virtual machine I seg faulted, and then every time I tried to start my laptop it crashed on boot. Until I removed it.

hello, meme probleme, il va falloir que je trouve une solution, je l'utilise quotidiennement d'un point de vue professionnel !
crash dump complet, serveur X en vrille !
j'ai essayé de desactiver certains preheriques de la machine, meme probleme.
aujourd'hui je vais supprimer et recréer les 2 reseaux.
c'est ennuyeux, l'integration fedora vmware est toujours problematique, souvent au changement de noyau (moins depuis les pilotes video recents) ou de vmware !

How about VMware Player 5?
I work with it on Fedora 17 without any problem.
But I use kernel 3.4.6-2.fc17.i686.PAE due to problem kernels 3.5.x and my ATI Mobility Radeon.
