Thread: VMware Player on openSUSE 13.1

  1. #1

    Default VMware Player on openSUSE 13.1

    Has anyone gotten VMware Player to work on openSUSE 13.1? Just last week I had it working on the RC but now since the release I can install it but as soon as I start a VM the program just crashes and doesn't give me an error message, and there is nothing in the log either.

    Try starting it from a terminal - that'll provide us with some sort of
    error message that can be diagnosed.

    I had a similar problem once and fixed it by reinstalling the video drivers (nVidia proprietary driver in my case).

    OK, so I got fed up, I was using the GNOME version, something told me to try out KDE. I installed the KDE 13.1 cd and vmware worked with out an issue.

    I'm glad you got it sorted, but now that you do see it working under KDE,
    you might try again with GNOME and see if whatever the issue was is
    resolved.

    You may also need to report this to VMware so they can look into it. If
    they don't work with GNOME, that's going to be a problem for a lot of
    people.

    If you launch from a terminal window, are you seeing any errors?

    Anything in the various log files?
