Default vmplayer not working after xorg upgrade

This morning I did an xorg-server upgrade which included IIRC 33 files
total on my system. After the upgrade I am unable to run the vmplayer
app. The GUI never comes up. If I run it in a terminal it seems to die
quietly after about 5 seconds. There are no additional messages in
dmesg. The machine is _mostly_ stable. The machine is emerge -DuN
@world/revdep-rebuild -i clean at this time.

I tried upgrading to 2.6.37 a month ago but had this same problem so I
fell back to 2.6.36-gentoo-r6 which has been working. At the time I
was using an ATI card so I'm going to try 2.6.37 again after I post
this.

All Virtualbox VMs are running fine.

Can anyone suggest other things to look at? The only purpose this
compute server has in life is to run many VMs for me so this is a big
killer to my afternoon.

I did install mailx/smtp stuff this morning prior to checking these
VMs. I doubt that's involved, but maybe who knows...

Let me know any questions or requests for more info.

Thanks in advance,
Mark

Here is what i see:

I tried a modules-rebuild -X rebuild but that didn't fix anything.
Here's the list of what get's rebuilt:

OK - there is nothing of interest in the setup log file above, but in
the same directory there is a player-log which is catching the crash.
I cannot tell what's kicking it off so I'm considering uninstalling
all the vmware stuff, looking for stale links, then reinstalling
vmware.

Possibly this is some issue with needing to update/rebuild some
standard library?

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Default vmplayer not working after xorg upgrade

Are you using the ebuilds for vmware? (Latest versions are in the
"vmware" overlay.) I run latest X.Org (1.9.4) and both workstation as
well as player have no problems here.

OK, it's working again, but I'm not happy.

Rebuilt all the VMware stuff multiple times. Nothing fixed it. Played
with anything I could think of. Nothing fixed it.

Decided to drop the Pentoo overlay and try the vmware overlay. Pain in
the butt because it didn't seem to support the same bundled revision
I'd been using. Completely uninstalled 7.1.3, installed 6.5. It
started working but the mouse was a mess and not working right. I then
tried the 7.1.3 unbundled version and it started working again.

I haven't a clue what really happened here or why it's working now.

I'm not confident it will work tomorrow.

I switched to those from Pentoo today Nikos and that's when it started
working. However what I found so far didn't support the bundled
workstation/tools package, only the workstation so right now I don't
have the additions stuff installed. I'll be looking into that
tomorrow.

Thanks!

It has a USE flags for those ("vmware-tools" flag) which pulls-in the
app-emulation/vmware-tools package. That package itself has USE flags
for which tools you want ("vmware_guest_linux", "vmware_guest_windows",
etc.)


The ISO images for the tools can then be found in the
/opt/vmware/lib/vmware/isoimages directory.

Thanks! I hadn't found the flags for vmware-tools. I'm sure that will help.

The VMs are already running for the day so I'll look at doing the
emerge later this afternoon when work is done.

Again, a big, appreciative thank you for the info.

Cheers,
Mark

Hi Nikos,
As of this evening all VMs seem to be working fine on 2.6.37 using
the ebuilds from the vmware overlay.

I appreciate you help.

Cheers,
Mark
