This sounds more like a misconfiguration issue than a bug. While
we do not officially support installing Fedora Core into VMware,
we provide mailing lists which users can use to discuss problems
of this nature. In particular you may wish to seek assistance
on our email@example.com, or alternatively you may try
the X.Org or XFree86 mailing lists.
After discussing the issue on the mailing lists, if you discover an
actual bug in X.Org or the vmware_drv video driver, please report
the issue to X.org bugzilla at http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the
"xorg" component, as VMware engineers monitor X.Org bugzilla for
VMware related bugs, and will often investigate any issues that
get reported, and fix them in future updates of X.Org and/or
Setting status to "NOTABUG"
Yeah...btw i fixed it by changing my host system color depth to 16
