Description Rasmus Ory Nielsen 2007-05-29 13:54:28 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; da-DK; rv:1.8.1.3) Gecko/20070323 BonEcho/2.0.0.3

Description of problem:
After upgrading to the latest version of libX11 vmware crashes as described on these pages:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/vmware-player/+bug/114828
http://www.vmware.com/community/thread.jspa?messageID=630226&#630226

The solution is to install the older libX11-1.0.3-4.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libX11-1.0.3-7.fc6

How reproducible:
Always


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to libX11-1.0.3-7
2. Start vmware with win2k as guest
3.

Actual Results:
At the moment it changes to normal resolution it terminates with a "Signal 11" error. 

Expected Results:
Vmware should not crash.

Additional info:
I don't know if this really is a libX11 bug or a vmware bug. I chose to open a bug here, so other people could benefit from the solution (install libX11-1.0.3-4).

You are correct, this is a vmware bug.
