kernel bug or vmware bug?



I'm running VMWare workstation 5.3 on FC6 i386 with the latest Fedora packages.

For the past week or so VMware has not been happy attempting to install rawhide or F7T2 or F7T3.  Strangely FC6 guests run fine.  The symptoms are that the install freezes and VMware itself consumes 100% of one cpu on my box.

Does anyone else have this problem?


I also noticed that dmesg shows several entries like this...
/dev/vmmon[5251]: host clock rate change request 0 -> 19
/dev/vmmon[5251]: host clock rate change request 19 -> 0
/dev/vmmon[5251]: host clock rate change request 0 -> 1001
/dev/vmmon[5251]: host clock rate change request 1001 -> 2005
/dev/vmmon[5254]: host clock rate change request 2005 -> 3010
/dev/vmmon[5251]: host clock rate change request 3010 -> 3011
/dev/vmmon[5251]: host clock rate change request 3011 -> 3010

which according to http://www.vmware.com/community/thread.jspa?messageID=363693&#363693

relates to /dev/rtc and a whitepaper is referenced on the issue.  If I understand the article correctly, page #24 implies that the problem comes from the linux kernel on the virtual host being run (e.g. the install of F7).

Am I reading this correctly?

Thanks,
John
