I wanted to test some crap in VMWare, didn’t feel like messing with the entire server thing so went for the player. Unfortunately, this thing doesn’t work against the 2.6.32 kernel.
I just finished updating my machine to the latest Linux kernel, 2.6.28. All worked, except for VMWare Server (which was still at 1.0.8). Since 2.0 has been released, time for an upgrade!
If you’re using VMWare on a variable-speed processor (like all most modern cpu’s these days) you might have noticed that sometimes the guest OS runs a lot faster (causing the guest clock to run faster and all kinds of weird effects).
I just installed VMWare server on my gf’s linux-laptop, but the server console didn’t want to start for some reason… Just came back to the command line, nothing happening.
If you’re rolling your own kernels, and upgraded to 2.6.22, you might have bumped into a compilation issue:
