I don’t know if this is the right time to put this in as 12.2 is in RC1 or if this is the place, but here goes.
If you’re using VMware & kernel 3.4 or Opensuse 12.2 & you find that your Workstation 8 or Player4.0.x doesn’t work you might try this patch form here:
vmware workstation 8.0.2 7.1.5 / player 4.0.2 3.1.5 fixes for linux 3.4 | Weltall’s blog
Look for And here it is an easier way for 8.0.x/4.0.x users
That’s where I got the patch for my VMware Player as I test 12.2 it does work well!
