I just tested the latest version of VMware Workstation for Linux on my Fedora 11 box and there are a couple of things that just bothered me. The big picture is that it’s not working smoothly:
The problems started on install time, in order to be able to install the rpm I had to uninstall gcc! (Thanks to Tusheto for the idea ). Then I could work as usual with your virtual machines until I tried to turn them off: it hung forever, I gave it 5 min. before having to kill window. The files stayed locked thanks to the vmtray that is not shown in GNOME, so if happen to have you VM’s in a external drive there is no way to cleanly unplugg it without killing the residual process.
Afer so many years working with VMware on Linux I really expected more. Rating F
Ran my tests on Fedora 11, kernel: 188.8.131.52-43.fc11.i686.PAE, and VMware-Workstation-6.5.3-185404.i386
