Description of problem:
I install Fedora Core 3 on VMware Workstation 4.5.2 (I've tried
Workstation 5 Beta as well), and it installs fine. When I reboot into
the new installation, everything is very, very slow. It takes about 8
minutes to start up. Everything runs so slowly, that it is unusable.
I tracked this problem down to the kernel, because I installed a
custom kernel and it worked fine. I'm not sure what kernel option
causes it though.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 3 in VMware Workstation
2. Reboot virtual machine
Actual Results: The virtual machine ran very slowly
Expected Results: The system runs fine
this was caused by the 4g4g patch in earlier kernels.
If you run the update kernels, this should be fixed.
