Re: VMWare on Fedora 8

I've installed F8 on an x86-64 system.  I've installed

modules with.  The compile of the VMWare modules appears
to be OK.

I've copied an existing VMWare image from another system.
When I start VMWare, it starts OK, but the system hangs
as soon as I tell it to start the guest machine.  There's
nothing useful in the vmware.log or /var/log/messages.

Has anyone run VMWare under F8?  Any tips or pointers?

I was able to get VMWare to run under F8.

I reinstalled F8 without Virtualization options.  Installed
kernel-headers and glibc-headers.  SELinux is set permissive.
Did NOT install -114 or any other patches.
