- Modules & VMWare service not loading after reboot
- There are a few reasons why this might happen.
- #1 The modules were not built correctly
- Make sure you have
zypper install gcc
zypper install kernel-source
- before you start.
- Next, (as root) run
mv /usr/lib/vmware/modules/binary /usr/lib/vmware/modules/binary.old
- VMWare should pop up a window indicating that it is rebuilding the modules and then you should be good to go.
- #2 The VMWare service requires the networking services to be up before it loads
- Disable IPv6 unless you are using it
- yast->network settings->Global Options->Uncheck Enable IPv6
- Next, if you use DHCP
- yast -> network settings -> overview -> edit -> DHCP Version 4 and 6 -> DHCP version 4 only
- I also had to do this before VMWare started every time
- yast -> System Services (Runlevel) -> vmware -> disable -> hit ok -> re-open System Services (runlevel) -> vmware -> enable -> hit ok
- On the next boot, the VMWare service should be up and running every time.
Microsoft Virtual PC 2007
In Virtual PC 2007 beta, when creating custom machine, I could not change the memory from 0 Mb. This can easily be done manually in the config file after creating it. The issue with sound I haven't verified to be 10.2 Alpha 5 only issue or Virtual PC issue.Virtual PC is available from here for free. --Pflodo
WARNING: With newer Linux kernels (openSUSE 10.3), your mouse will not work. Workaround: add "i8042.noloop" as a kernel boot parameter.
Sound Blaster 16 must be manually installed via Yast, it is not auto-detected.
openSUSE 11.0 will fail. Workaround kernel parameters: "noreplace-paravirt i8042.noloop clock=pit". Even then mouse will be unresponsive. If anyone knows what else can be done to improve user experience, please add here. --Technologov
